Hynds Pipe Systems Paper Competition

The Hynds Paper 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 automatically entered. Before the conference, our judges will select the 3 best papers for presentation at the conference. These 3 papers will be presented in the Hynds Pipe Systems Paper plenary session on the Thursday of the conference. The presentations are judged by the audience, who select the winner. The winner of the 2018 Hynds Paper, and partner, will attend the 2018 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.  Hynds Paper 2018 Rules
