The 2018 competition has seen the largest amount of entrants, with 132 participants from Australia and abroad, including Singapore, China, the UK, India, New Zealand, Switzerland and Romania.

The event encourages participants to create thought-provoking works of art for the body, based around set categories.

This year’s event included five categories which were aimed to be inclusive to all skill levels and ages:  avant-garde, transformation, metallic, tertiary student and youth (under 18 years old).
