The place of the exhibition is the same as last year’s – near “Park” hotel at the Sea Garden. This year a 8.5 m long fairytale tree will rise amid the sand town. There will be a nest on its top with two storks - symbol for happiness and hope not only for Bulgarians. The central composition will be sculptured together by all the participant artists in the festival. They are 18 and come from Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, Netherlands, USA, Portugal and Bulgaria. The Bulgarian group includes three artists – Atanas Stoyanov, Lyubo Kotsev and Dobrin Vatev. They contribute to the realization to one of the main objectives of the festival – development of Bulgarian sand sculpture school.
