The town in question was Norwich as over 200 delegates and 50 body painting competitors and models gathered  for the 3rd Paintopia Festival earlier this month. The event has gone from strength to strength with the winners and placed competitors raising the bar as far as UK bodypainting competitons.

This was the first year that organisers split the Bodypainter of the Year into two categories as they felt recognition for the efforts put in by the Assistants was worth.
