Designs which are bright, bold and sometimes utterly bizarre are on display at the World Bodypainting Festival. More than 300 artists from 45 nations are involved in the three-day competition based at Woerthersee Lake, in south Austria, which started on Friday. Around 1,500 participants are competing in brush and sponge, airbrush and special effects categories. The festival also includes exhibitions and parties where guests dance in spectacular costumes and painted bodies. Over the years the festival has given a major platform to the art form that 20 years ago was unknown.
