The SNAZAROO Face-Off is a perpetual competition that runs on the Snazaroo website, to find the King/Queen of the Hill. (the world renown face paint manufacturer) In 2006, due to the popularity of this contest, the competition was split into three categories: Faces, Bodies and Cheek Art.
Original pieces of face painting that artists think might pose a "challenge" to the current reigning King or Queen, can then be submitted to Gary Cole @ garycole(at)mindspring.com Please refrain from submitting a tiger, Spiderman, or butterfly - unless it is quite unique! Originality is the key! You may not submit a photo that has previously been submitted in any other contest hosted by SNAZAROO.
Every year Snazaroo, then puts the best of the years King/Queen examples into a Best Of the year page.
The Face Painting Association was formed in 1995 so that like minded people could get together and share ideas and problems in order to improve standards and raise the profile of face painting. Members have to pass a certification test in order to join and this is to ensure that all FACE Members have reached a set standard of speed and competence.
FACE stands for Fast Accredited Creative Experts which means that anyone booking a FACE member can be confident that our high standards will be met.
