On Saturday, UPG Pipe Co, Ltd organised a prize ceremony for the Eagle Pipe Art Contest, an event the company held to inspire skills, creativity and talent in art creation by future engineers, architects and artists. There were 14 art submissions in the contest, made either individually or by a group. The event was open to all young people and gave them the opportunity to make any kind of contemporary artwork using Eagle PVC pipe. The contest categories included decorative objects, tools, furniture, sculptures, installations and performance.
“The Eagle Pipe art contest will be held again in 2018 and the following years with even bigger prizes, with enrolment beginning in June 2018 with an invitation for contestants from schools and universities not only in Phnom Penh but all across Cambodia,” said Chhun Chetna, managing director of UPG Pipe Co, Ltd.
