Amazing Sand Sculptures
Hundreds of sand sculpting competitions are held annually around the world. One of the longest running competitions is the World Championship of Sand Sculptures. This amazing competition has taken place in Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia and other varied locations since 1986. The competition includes single, dual, and team categories. Sculptors’ methods can be quite complex, and achievements in this competition are often recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

In sand sculpting competitions, rules often require that the finished structure is sprayed with a stabilizing coating that keeps the structures safe and sound for several months.
