Treble Cone at Wanaka is calling for sculptors to sharpen their tools and creative flair for the Zumwohl On Ice sculpture competition at Treble Cone next month, with $1600 up for grabs.
Ten finalists will have two days to transform a metre block of ice into a winter masterpiece. The sculptured work will remain on display around Treble Cone's plaza and base building through the July school holidays.
Carvings are made from either prepared designs or freehand. The toolkits are varied and contain everything from hand chisels, saws and axes through to battery drills and chainsaws. The carvings will be judged on creative artistry, how well they involve the audience at Treble Cone and the relevance to the alpine surroundings.
The competition starts at 9am on June 30 and ends on July 1.
