We are pleased to announce the Front 2020 Discovery Day competition - a student-focused make-up, hair and special effects design challenge created to celebrate talent and innovation, and provide aspiring artists with the opportunity to showcase their flair. The competition is open to students from a range of levels and experience, and provides the opportunity to showcase talent and abilities in a live competition format. Contestants will have access to Solent's industry-standard facilities, as well as technical support and mentoring from key members of the Solent make-up, hair and SFX team.
This is for full- or part-time make-up students in FE, art foundation students, and level three diplomas across art and design and make-up and hair design.
We are looking for contestants willing to push the boundaries and challenge the understanding of the body, beauty and hair styling. Before students apply, they are advised to find a partner to work with. Joint applicants can choose to create designs from one of the following four categories:
- Fashion and editorial beauty
- Radical body and special effects
- Structural hair and styling
- Foundation and college
Artists will be marked on their technical skills, professionalism and hygiene. Final looks will then be judged on creativity and technical proficiency. The winning teams will be announced on the day and presented with an exciting range of prizes. The judging process will take place during the live competition, which will be held at Solent University on Friday 21 February 2020. The judging will have three stages:
