The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show—better known as IMATS—will bring world-class make-up talent to Australia this fall.
Keynote speakers for the show, held Sept. 12-13 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, include Rae Morris, the make-up director of Australia’s Fashion Week, a four-time winner of Australia’s Makeup Artist of the Year award and the author of Makeup The Ultimate Guide.
      
Morris will be joined by Britain’s BAFTA-winning make-up effects designer Neill Gorton, whose work appears in hundreds of TV shows and films, including The Da Vinci Code and Children of Men. He is the founder of Millennium FX and the Neill Gorton Prosthetics Studio.
     





Along with the keynote presentations, IMATS Sydney will feature more than 50 international cosmetics vendors and educational seminars held throughout the weekend. A gothic theme has been chosen for the IMATS student competition’s beauty/fantasy component; the prosthetic/character competition has an X-Men mutants theme.
   
IMATS Sydney is sponsored by Make-Up Artistmagazine, which covers professional make-up artistry in film, fashion, TV and theater. It was created in 1996 by Emmy Award®-winning make-up artist Michael Key and is internationally circulated. In addition to IMATS Sydney, Make-Up Artist magazine hosts three other annual trade shows: IMATS London, held in January; IMATS Los Angeles, held in June; and IMATS Toronto, held in November.
