IPS Ceramics Alumina Pyramid Competition

Competition: How Many Alumina Pyramids are in the Bottle?

Posted by Tom Evans on October 21, 2019

When we’re at events and expos, a popular feature is always our Alumina Pyramid Competition. Each expo, we fill a bottle with Alumina Pyramids and challenge people to guess how many there are. Prizes for the closest guess have included Whiskey, Bespoke Silicon Carbide Chess Sets, and more.

People who couldn’t attend the expo can sometimes miss out though, so we’re bringing the competition online! Above is a photo of a bottle filled with Alumina Pyramids. If you think you can tell how many there are, let us know – the closest guess we receive will win A LIMITED EDITION CERAMIC KNIFE made from zirconia.

To enter, simply go to the competition post on LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook, follow us (if you haven’t already) and post your guess as a comment on that post. The competition will close at noon on 25th October 2019 (GMT). Good luck!


  • The competition runs from 9:00 AM 21/09/2019 (GMT) until 12:00 Noon 25/09/2019 (GMT). Any entries made before or after these times will not be counted.

  • Entrants must be over the age of 18.
  • The winner shall be the single person whose guess is closest to the actual number of Alumina Pyramids in the bottle. If more than one person guesses the exact amount, or if there is tie, then the winner shall be picked by random from the potential winning entries.
  • One entry per person. If you post more than one entry, we will only accept your first one. If you post more than one guess in a single entry, we will only count the first one.
