Photography at the WBF 2024

From the beginning, since 1998, photography has been an integral part of the festival.

After 25 years and many challenges in the open-air location, the World Bodypainting Festival 2023 marked a new chapter with its 26th edition: For the first time, the Bodypainting and Makeup World Championships took place in a weather-independent indoor location, the Messearena Klagenfurt.

The new venue brought advantages, especially for photographers, such as the opportunity to create large photosets and an extended timeframe for photography, as it is no longer dependent on daylight.

The easy accessibility in the heart of Klagenfurt also speaks for the new location. One can drive directly to the "doorstep" by car or, when arriving by train, reach the Bodypainting Arena in just a few minutes on foot from the main station.

The new festival layout, with a focus on art and photography, was very well received by all participants! The feedback afterwards was fantastic, and we are already looking forward to #wbfestival2024!
