Watch ice sculpture artists competing for a prize!
What do you get when you combine block of ice with a chainsaw? A lot of fun! And this is exactly what Poznan Ice Festival is about! This year edition of Poznan Ice Festival will be held during the weekend of 9th December in Poznan Old Market Square. Be there to observe the most talented artists and world champions in ice sculpture, who will be competing for a prize. Whole event is divided in two days:
Speed Ice Carving - 9th December, Main Stage - The Old Market Square
The most spectacular competition of the festival. An individual competition for sculptors who have several minutes to copy the model presentedto them during the contest. All of them must use identical blocks of ice. The most perfectly reproduced model wins. These sculptures will later adorn the Old Market Square.
Main Competition - 10th December, Old Market Square
Twelve 2-person teams, several tons of ice, free choice of topic. All teams have the whole day to create sculptures of a few cubic meters or so. The contest has its own unique atmosphere, thanks to the exceptional charm of the Old Market Square and the atmosphere of upcoming Christmas. The selection of winners and awards ceremony will be held at the traditional time - in the evening of the second day.
See you there!
