2013 Battle of the Brushes Themes Announced
posted Thursday, Nov. 6, 2012
The IMATS Battle of the Brushes student competitions are some of the most exciting events during the show. Each year, 16 students-per-IMATS race against the clock and each other to win cash, prizes and acclaim. And themes for the beauty/fantasy and character/prosthetic categories change every year.
For 2013, the beauty/fantasy theme is The Elements, inspired by—but not limited to—the four forces of nature: earth, wind, fire and water. The beauty/fantasy competition takes place on Saturday, and the time limit is two hours.
The 2013 character/prosthetic theme is Oz: The Great and Powerful, based on the upcoming movie. This competition takes place on Sunday. Competitors will be given prosthetics on the day of competition, which they must incorporate into their designs. The time limit for the character competition is three hours. No outside prosthetics are allowed, only those supplied by IMATS.
For complete details on entering the Battle of the Brushes and rules on the competition, visit the Student Competition page.
