Initiated by the company’s Eagle pipe brand, the EAGLE Pipe Art Contest is the first of its kind. The challenge called for the submission of creative pipe artworks such as decorative objects, tools, furniture, collages, sculptures, installations, performances etc. using just the product range of Eagle Pipe.  Young artists from local universities attending the contest firmly demonstrated their creative artistic talent. 

14 student candidates submitted their individual or collective entries with only seven selected as winners of the awards.

The first prize winner was given to Tang Sang Voong, a fifth year student at the Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) majoring in engineering industry who made a car from the Eagle Pipe that can carry over 100 kg in weight.

A native from Kompong Speu province, Sang Voong told Construction and Property Magazine at the prize conferring ceremony on 5 August that he had invested serious effort in order to win the competition. “It took me two efforts to make this car. I spent only half a month to make the first version, but it took me over a month for the final one.”

Chhun Chetna, Managing Director of UPG Pipe Co., Ltd felt proud to see candidates investing serious commitment into the usable invention competition despite their busy school schedules. “Whether or not they will further their education or career in the arts, I believe they will contribute their creativity to our economic, social and cultural development,” he said.

Following the success of this first contest, Chetna announced at the prize-giving that the competition would be held annually with bigger prizes on offer. “The 2018 contest will be open for registration in June 2018 to any contestants from schools or universities not only in Phnom Penh but across Cambodia.”
