The Application Station showcases the work of up to twelve exciting up-and-coming artists and this year it’s competitive again! Located in Hall 2, you will find the artists applying full-scale prosthetic makeups in a dedicated area throughout the day, so check back at intervals to watch their progress and feel free to ask them about their techniques and chosen materials!

This competition is open to everyone, but entrants are divided into newcomer and professional categories and will be judged on their own merits and level of experience. The finished makeups will be paraded on the Main Stage at 4.30pm, when the prize for the Best Overall Makeup and potentially Best Newcomer will be awarded. The prizes are fantastic bundles of makeup kit products from our generous Exhibitors.

Good luck all!

Patrycja Nowacka

With over 7 years of experience creating prosthetics, Patrycja has spent five of those working professionally in film, across both short and feature length movies. With a passion for horror and intrigued by all that is morbid, Patrycja also loves recreating casualties and wounds, taking great care to make her applications as realistic as possible.






Magdalena Rosa

Magdalena is a special effects and prosthetics makeup artist and workshop trainee. She has recently graduated from an MA in Prosthetics and Sculpting at Buckinghamshire New University, and is now working on gaining experience. Magdalena spent a couple of weeks at Millennium FX in the mould shop in addition to being on set for various films and adverts. She has a great passion for designing and creating fantasy creatures, as well as keeping her work as realistic and believable as possible.





Anya Volkov

Anya spent much of her life considering herself to be a generic artist, before falling in love with prosthetics and special effects makeup around three years ago.  She has attended courses in the UK, but works mainly in Israel in adverts, music videos, short movies, and photo shoots. “Fantasy is real” is Anya’s hashtag. She started out taking inspiration from folklore tales, but nowadays considers anything to have the potential to hotwire her fantasy genre. Passionate in all aspects of prosthetics, Anya is very excited to explore any new opportunities that come her way.
