In a spirit of mutual support and cooperation, teams of local, national and international artists will come together to create Edmonton’s largest snow sculpture garden at the 14th Annual International Snow Sculpture Symposium. The symposium is one of the premier events of the Silver Skate Festival in picturesque William Hawrelak Park, the crown jewel of the City of Edmonton’s River Valley Park System.
The Silver Skate International Snow Sculpture Symposium has no official theme. The festival does not want to limit the creative possibilities of the teams of artists applying. It is amazing what can be created in this ephemeral medium and the chosen teams will reflect the dynamic and diverse possibilities of snow as a sculptural medium.
Completed snow sculptures will be entered in voting for two awards: an Artists’ Choice award, and a People’s Choice award. Winners will be announced at 4:00pm on Sunday, February 9, 2020.
The participation honorarium in 2020 is $1150 for each team invited to participate in the competition.
