Of course. Most water in Antarctica is frozen, ice, and there may be some sublimation, but liquid water will evaporate. Most of the water (ice) in Antarctica does not really change its state much; there is little precipitation and little evaporation/sublimation.
Yes, water does evaportate in Antarctica though in very small amounts. Since there is little evaporation, the snow that falls builds up in thick ice sheets. Antarctica is technically considered a desert as it has less than 2 inches of annual precipitation.
