SEEBODEN, Carinthia, Austria -- The 17th annual World Bodypainting Festival, held from June 29 until July 6, came to a close in Seeboden, Carinthia, Austria, as hundreds gathered to celebrate a cult-favorite in the art community: body painting. The international competition is held in a small town where hundreds of bodypaint artists gather to showcase their talents and compete against the world's finest.

U.S. artists Scott Fray and Madelyn Greco became the world's first artists to win five world-champion titles in five categories after nabbing first places in face painting and UV effects.
