Towngas Street Art x Pit Cover Design Contest

Using art to beautify pit covers on the street is a growing trend in many cities around the world. Towngas is taking the lead, bringing this unique street art to Hong Kong with the organisation of Towngas Street Art x Pit Cover Design Contest.
 
The Contest provides a creative platform for the people of Hong Kong to decorate Towngas pit covers with vivid colours and graphics. The resulting artwork will provide a new and unique form of street art.
 
The winning designs may have the opportunity to be made into real Towngas pit covers and installed across the territory. So hurry - you can create your own art for the streets of Hong Kong!

Design Themes
Participants can choose one of the following themes for submission:
1. Hong Kong Story
Towngas has grown together with Hong Kong over the years. Tell us how you have walked your own pathway and grown with Hong Kong!
