ABOUT THE THEME...

The theme for 2018 is The Circus. This competition offers each contestant an unrivalled opportunity to use the circus environment and character costume as their inspiration and allows artistic license to create an individual interpretation of the theme. For the body painting competition we expect you to use this to create an original piece of body art. You are also encouraged to make use of prosthetics, head dresses and wigs to create a 3D design. For the Fashion Make Up competition, you are encouraged to use the circus theme to create an individual piece of creative face make up. You are also encouraged to make use of costume, head dresses and wigs to create an outstanding design. 

BRINGING YOUR MODEL...

All competitors will need to ensure their models sign up for a model badge to gain free entry into Olympia Beauty, so that they can access the competition arena. After you have signed up as a competitor, you will be emailed with information on how to register your models.
