Our Judges are Maria Malone-Guerbaa and Jo Peters.  With a background in Fine Art, Maria trained at CMBA before working in film, TV and theatre, until a chance request to help with facepainting at her kids’ schools and she fell in love with the new canvas.  The rest, as they say, is history – and her 200k Instagram followers can’t get enough of her work.  With a global reach, Maria’s a regular in the media, juggling demoing and teaching with collaborations with many cosmetic companies.  Follow her @mariamalone1122 She’s looking for technique, flair and originality in your video.
