TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

Students from the Savannah College of Art and Design's Fine Arts and Foundation Studies on Friday showed off their sand sculpture talents on Tybee Island.

It's part of the annual Sand Arts Festival, which was held on the island's north beach. SCAD sculptors molded sand into jaw-dropping - extraordinary works of art. 

There's nearly $5,000 in prize money at stake in the competition. Sand arts competitors can choose from a number of categories including sand castle, sand sculpture, sand relief and wind sculpture - with three winners in each category.

"Actually, he and I just came up with the idea today, just on the spot. But other years, I've seen people plan, and it's just been harder and harder every year to come out. I think, just to create something new and exciting for people to see," said Steven Demarinis.

The contest wrapped up at 4 p.m., but the sand sculptures will remain on the beach as long as the weather holds out.
