Australian Body Art Carnivale winners 2012


What a weekend! The village of Eumundi came alive on the weekend with the 2012 Australian Body Art Carnivale drawing thousands to watch some of the nation’s best body artists, face painters, vehicle artists and wearable art designers do battle.
Event Manager Danielle Taylor says this year’s competition theme of ‘Under the Sea’ provided great inspiration across all competition categories.
“The creative energy was incredible – with so many talented artists working alongside each other as they created what can only be described as aquatic masterpieces.”
“We saw fish, mermaids, octopi, and a wealth of creatures from the depths of the ocean!”
“The camaraderie between the artists was great to see – all encouraging and supporting each other, especially the artists who were painting bodies for their first time in this year’s event”
Danielle says it was no easy task for judges this year.
“The level of competition was of particularly high standard and we congratulate all the competitors for sharing their talents and bringing such passion to the event”
