Each year in January, ice sculptors from around the world gather in London, England to compete in the annual Ice Sculpting Festival.
Forming eight teams, the sculptors create spectacular works of art from blocks of ice at three spaces in London – Montgomery Square, Canada Square Park and Jubilee Place.
One winner is chosen as the favorite by the public in the Public Choice Award, and other awards are selected from categories including a Doubles Competition and a Singles Competition.
Winter foods and drinks can be purchased, and there is a snow pit for kids to play in, as well as 20 minute master classes where adults can learn the basics of ice sculpting.
