- Venelin Ivanov / Varna / - "Chapel";
- Milen Vassilev / Vratsa / - sculpture "Flying Eagle" and "Bear";
- Veselin Shoshkov / Trojan / - Viking and ancient bulgarian of chamotte.

The most attractive moment during the symposium is the work technology itself. For the sculptures they use electric wood cutters, by which they are forming the wood.

But one of the sculpturists - Milen Vassilev showed for the Bulgarian TV how can transform a log into the head of a bear. The hospitable hosts - family Tihovi provided conditions for creative work of the team - accommodation, food, large garden with stunning panoramic view to the beautiful mountain peaks. The material was provided by the municipality, some sculptures are measuring 1-2 meters. On May 18, 2007 an exhibition of artworks was conducted, which was attended by representatives of the applied arts in the region and representatives of the tourism industry. The exhibition was shown in a special music background and the president of "Tour Club ReMark" Nico Zarichinova, sang some evergreen songs and played a guitar.

And the celebration continued with a kind of jam session…
