IMATS Sydney is also an excellent place to shop: some

the latest products. Make-up pieces from film and television
will be displayed in the IMATS Make-up Museum. And
in the Battle of the Brushes student make-up competition,
students will race against the clock to create winning looks
and take home trophies, cash and prizes. The beauty category
is themed Art Though the Ages, while the character category
is themed The World of Comic Books and Graphic Novels.
In addition to the Sydney show, IMATS is held in Los
Angeles; New York; London; Vancouver, British Columbia;
and Toronto. All events are produced by Make-Up Artist
magazine, a division of Key Publishing Group. Read in
nearly 70 countries, the magazine was created in 1996 by
Emmy Award-winning make-up artist Michael Key.
