The “Asian Bodypainting Photo Award” 29-31 August 2008

With the evanescent art on the body, photography is an essential part of the Asian festival.

For photographers especially we offer the “photo ticket” to get access to the restricted photo contest area (Photo Award Area). This area consists of different backgrounds and requisites.
All models come into this area when finishing and photographers can record their fantastic images here. Every participant can take part in the photo contest as well.

Photos are sent to an international jury. Out of all entries we produce the photo catalogue, which will be sent to all participants for free.

Details for the photo contest, the “Asian Bodypainting Photo Award"
There are the two categories

* “Photo Print ” and
* “Digital Art” to be judged.

A fter the festival ends, the best photos of the event will be judged by a jury and awarded prizes. There will be cash prizes and photo equipment to win. All works will be shown in a projection show the year later in the festival week. Some of the photos will be shown in the photo catalogue, which is sent for free to every participant.

In this category photos are shown which are close to the original photo. Photos which are not transformed too much with a photo editor. Of course corrections are allowed to be made, but the photo should keep its original meaning.

Digital Art:
In this category photos are changed in their originality. The digital art categorie has no boundries but the bodypainting art or the festival should still be the main content.

Rules of the “Asian Bodypainting Photo Award” contest
* Registering as a photographer is essential.
