Nobody said it was easy – Teams of Baltic Snow Call 2019

Posted 11/12/2018

The contestant teams for the second Baltic Snow Call have now been chosen.

Baltic Snow Call started as an invitational contest for sculptors around Baltic Sea region. This time we decided to spread the call to the whole universe! The qualification process has been a very difficult task, because of the many excellent applications we have received from all around the globe. From some of the countries we have got two or even more applications.

We received applications from almost all continents. For example teams from Egypt, Korea, Argentina, Iran and India were all very keen to participate in Baltic Snow Call 2019. – A big thanks to all applicants!
