The competition is called Battle of the Brushes, which is a special effects/ prosthetic/creative hair and make-up competition.
"Our theme for this year is 'Camp and Eccentric, show us your bizarre normal is boring'," event planner Faith King'ola told Word Is.
The event aims to bring together all the stakeholders of this exponentially growing industry to celebrate beauty and art in beauty, to set a new trend, unveil new faces and grow to influence the industry.
