Navarre Beach, Florida. (AP) --

Expert sand-sculpting artists from around the nation have begun a three-day competition in Navarre Beach on the Florida Panhandle.

The competition began Friday, September 24. The artists say they want to highlight the area's clean beaches and erase images of this
summer's destructive BP oil spill.

BP is still cleaning ribbons of buried oil that washed ashore in
June from the Florida state line to Apalachicola. The company is
seeking permission from the Department of Interior to use machinery
to dig below six inches on Panhandle beaches to clean the oil.
