Syfy has ordered a 10-episode third season of its special-effects competition reality competition series "Face Off."

Production on Season 3 is to begin this spring for a summer premiere.

Season 2 of "Face Off" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Judging the competition are some of the most renowned names in the SFX world -- three-time Academy Award winner Ve Neill, famed special-effects makeup artist Glenn Hetrick and director/creature designer Patrick Tatopoulos.

Casting for trained and self-taught special-effects makeup artists to take part in Season 3 is under way, the network said.

The winning SFX artist will earn $100,000 in seed money to help grow their special-effects career, a year's supply of Alcone makeup products and a Reinvented 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
