****UPDATE: Due to adverse weather conditions the event will now be held on September 3rd****

It has been revealed today that Wallace & Gromit will be the guest judges at this year’s Grand Day Out Sandcastle Competition, organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and North Somerset Council.

Teams of architects, students, designers (and a few Aardman staff!) will compete on the sands near the annual Sand Sculpture Festival site on Saturday September 3rd. The final sand creations will then be judged and prizes will be awarded for:

• Tallest creation
• Most technically daring
• Best overall sand castle
• People's Choice

Holiday-makers will be invited to choose their favourite in the people's choice award and all funds raised will go to Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal, which supports Bristol Children's Hospital.

Oh dear...that wasn't a close shave... First time my family and I have gone to the beach for vacation. With all that sand could've build a big ol' castle. But...

still doesn't mean I still wanna see the cool ones people make! GO! Lol.

Haha! Thats cool! All that work put into it...sad to think someone came by to kick it over or the coast got to it...But time well spent!

actually I have a confession...I dont like the feeling of wet sand on my feet, than you walk into dry sand...than put on sandals

Oh having to wear shoes with sand on your feet is a horrible sensation, but other than that, I love sand! And the sandcastle competition looks awesome.

Yeah I hate that gritty sensation too If it's not raining at the weekend I'm going to try and head down to take some pictures of the sandcastles :D
