There's been an annual international ice sculpture competition (or actually multiple competitions) in Korkeasaari (zoo in Helsinki, Finland) since year 2003. Here is my photographs of competitions from years 2004 and 2005.
Next to images there is name of the sculpture and names & countries of team members. I have also marked winners next to images. (There was a jury that selected winner in competitions. But also audience were able vote their own favourite.) And of course there is my own comments :-)
Note that these pages doesn't contain all sculptures that were made on competitions. Mostly because I wasn't able to take good photographs of them. Lack of light and tripod were one problem. Another one was that some sculptures totally lost their beauty and shape after flattened to 2D photograph.
