It was all about embracing one’s inner creative with “Unlimited Fun @ uShaka” for this year’s theme at the uShaka Body Art competition which took place on Saturday, May 28th at the uShaka Marine World Village Walk.
Walking off with the R5000 cash prize was 32 year old Teri Ferreira from Johannesburg, who originally hails from Kloof, with her colourful and creative interpretation that caught the judge’s eye amongst the tough competition.
“It all happened so fast”, said karate instructor Ferreira. She had sent through her entry just before the closing date after her husband “happened to mention” earlier that week that he saw that a Body Art competition was taking place in Durban at uShaka at the weekend. After confirming her entry, she then made plans to travel to Durban along with her husband and 4 year old daughter for a weekend full of fun and ended up claiming first prize.
Fellow Durbanites, 26 year old, Caelisha Harris was the runner up with a R2500 cash prize and taking third place was 28 year old, Shana Ramjewan, who won R1000 in cash.
uShaka Marine World was ecstatic to see the amount of creativity shown by the contestants and looks forward to making this event an annual one.
