Here are some of the amazing art sculptures that were recently entered into the annual World Ice Art Championship. These works of art are outstanding and it must be a real challenge for the judges choosing a winner.
Fairbanks, Alaska, is home to the World Ice Art Championships, one of the world’s largest ice sculpting competitions and exhibitions. From its beginning in 1988, the World Ice Art Championships has grown to a month-long event featuring more than 70 teams from around the world.
The 2013 event, which ran from February 26 – March 31 was a great success and scheduling has already begun for the 2014 event (Feb. 24 – March 30, 2014 – 10 am – 10 pm daily)
Below you will find highlights from the ‘Single Block’ category which featured 40 sculptures made by teams of one or two members. Each team was given one block of ice and 60 hours to create their works of art. The results were astounding.
