UPDATE (June 2012): The challenge was a success, 57 models by 31 participants. The participants chose the condiment shakers as their winner and the judges chose the sleeve for CD/DVD and liner notes as theirs. Now I wish to propose the creation of a book with the models to the participants. That's why I now ask you to look at the models bellow in the Gallery and answer the poll-type question ; )
Show your level of creativity! This time it’s not about how realistic or attractive your model is, but about coming up with a great idea and turning it into paper.
With no further ado, I present to you the…
Inter-forum Useful Model Challenge
The judging and voting criteria for this challenge is the level of usefulness of the model, but also, it’s ASTONISHMENT FACTOR. So “think outside the box”, there’s more to useful origami than a box or an envelope. So you think you can invent a totally different and innovative useful model?
You’ll compete against challengers from the whole world! Six forums will participate in this integrative event. You’ll also have the chance to win a book with a personal dedication from its author or 50 € (Euros) for the ORIGAMI SHOP. Convince the judges, three origamists from different countries that have demonstrated their skill for useful models, and the voters that your model deserves to win.
