March 17th, 2022

After two years without events, 2022 has begun with a bang and we’re excited to launch a bodypaint jam and student makeup competitions in conjunction with Paintopia, UK bodypainting specialists, and supported with prizes from Tilt Professional Makeup.


Student competitions are on Monday 25th April.  Judged by top industry experts, winners receive trophies and goodie bags, as well as being about to get their work in front of decision makers.

Bodypainters will get together for the debut Warpaint Extra Jam on Sunday 24th April, meeting at 9.30 for a 10am start.  There are spot prizes galore along with medal and trophies for those that impress.

Tickets for the event cost £25 plus the competition entry fee of £15.
