Hynds Pipe Systems Paper Competition

The Hynds Pipe Systems competition, kindly sponsored by Hynds Pipe Systems, is held at our annual IPWEA NZ conference. All IPWEA NZ members who have a paper accepted for presentation at the conference, are eligible to enter. Before the conference, our judges will select the three best papers for presentation at the conference. These three papers will be presented in the Hynds Pipe Systems Paper plenary session on the Wednesday afternoon of the conference. The presentations are judged by the audience.

The winner of the 2020 Hynds Pipe Systems Award and partner, will attend the 2021 IPWEA Queensland Division annual conference, for the winner to present the winning paper – all expenses paid. The prize for each of the 2 runners up is a 2-day Great Mystery Break for 2, or equivalent air travel.
