2022 Winners

The 2022 Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition took place July 14-17, 2022.

Visitors witnessed master sculptors carving sand using the theme of the “Roaring 20s.” Twenty-five competitors were allowed 30 hours to convert 255 yards of sand into sculptures based on this very broad theme. The Parksville Beach Festival Society handed out a total of $43,350 to the sculptors at the Awards Ceremony on the Sunday evening. The results of the competition are below.
