All participants should send an application to the following address (origami2011olympiad(at=”@”)gmail(dot=”.”)com).
The application should contain the following text: I (name surname), origamist from (country) want to take part in the International Origami Internet-Olympiad 2011

Requirements for participants:

Photos of final results of tasks should be send not later then 30.06.2011 quality within 480х480 - 1500х1500.
2) The Olympics round includes tentatively 10 tasks: 4 diagrams of various levels of difficulty (from easy to complex), 4 patterns, tessellation and own work. For each model indicates the maximum score (in points).
These jobs are ONLY FOR PERSONAL USAGE and may not be distributed in the network (as well as published in some other way).
3) Each participant gets a task with further instructions during one day after Olympiad starts on specified in the application e-mail. Winners are determined (in three weeks after deadline) by a competent jury.
Design of results:
1. Any type of paper can be used.
2. Allowed to paint and glue model, if it would not prevent identification of all elements of the model, as well as pre-creased lines that define the assembly process. This paragraph does not extend on the author's “own work”.
3. In the competition should be used only photos which were never published before.
4. Each model should be photographed (at least!) from three angles, to clearly display all the details. Photos with low quality will not be considered.
5. Main images should be the minimum redacted by any programs. Full usage of such programs is allowed only for composite images.
6. Before the end of Olympics participants should not upload photos of entries in the Internet.
It is not commercial project so the prizes are: tasks that you will receive for free and world-wide respect ....
Refereeing: the judge of the first Olympiad will be recruited from among the judges of the Russian origami forum, because they have experience in assessing such competition (4 All-Russian Olympiads). Thereafter, in the next competitions, refereeing can be updated from among the winners, as they choice in the next year.

Authors who wish to participate in this event, need send on (origami2011olympiad(at)gmail(dot)com) your diagrams, CP or photo-diagrams until the 30.04.2011... If your diagram will pass the selection, it will be added to the task competitions. All authors who have sent their diagrams will receive a copy tasks of competitions at your e-mail.
The quality of the diagrams, CP and photo-diagram is not important, because all diagrams would be tested and redraw in the common style. This is a great opportunity not only to obtain high-quality tested diagrams of their models, but also to see how the participants of the Olympiad will fold your work.

Best Regards,

Andrey Ermakov

Dear friends!
Yesterday we have finished the receiving of requests from authors who decided to take part in our Olympiad in memory of Eric Joisel!
I would like to thank all masters who send their diagrams for tasks. It is really great works, publication of which would be the envy of leading origami magazines.

Unfortunately, the size of competition does not allow to include the all models, that’s why just some of them were chosen.
As a result, the works of the following masters will be on Olympiad:

Artur Biernacki (Poland)
Andrey Lukyanov (Ukraine)
Nguyen Hung Cuong (Vietnam)
Yartcev Sergey (Russia)
Benoit Zenker (France)
Nicolas Gajardo Henricez(Chile)
Andrey Ermakov (Russia)
Daniel Kwan (USA)
Eric Joisel(France)
Peter Keller (Germany)
Mariya Sinayskaya (South Africa)

I would like to thank again all authors and remind that they will receive the gift copy (general-file) of all Olympiad tasks (diagrams, CP etc.) by e-mail. All diagrams are exclusively designed and could be received only by taking part in the Olympiad.

I would like to remind you that participation in the Olympiad is free. Accepting of requests for participation extends only until 31/05/2011, and should include a letter with the text:
«I (name surname), origamist from (country) want to take part in the International Origami Internet-Olympiad 2011»

Those of you, who have not yet sent the request, could do it through the following e-mail:

Best Regards,
Andrey Ermakov

Question 1"...I would like to request a clarification of Rule 2. Are we allowed to add shaping folds beyond what the author has diagrammed? For example,
on the first model, I might want to use more realistic curvature than a simple "S" shape. Would I be
disqualified for it?"
Answer 1 All in norm. Allowed to change the form of model on the final step.
Competitor disqualified in two cases -
1) If send photos of not their work (as well as all types of fraud, including PhotoShop etc)
2) publish the work before the end of main Olympiad time (1.06-30.06)
In other cases, (not high-quality photos, poor assembly model) - the maximum will be reduced only part of the final score for a particular task, but will not be disqualified.

Question 2" ....3 shots and the email to be under 10 mb?..."
Answer 2 ....Yes, three photos for each model that you can fold (besides Tess and Kusudama), in different angles. But if you want, you can send a combined photo, like - this ( ... ca6b15.jpg) but the image quality should be sufficient to identify the elements of the model...

Question 3 "How can I reduce the size of photos, if the total size of e-mail more then 10Mb"
Answer 3 This easy can be done by using specialized resource for publishing photos, like,,, where you can adjust the size of photos...

I have a question about rule 5.
5. Main images should be the minimum redacted by any programs. Full usage of such programs is allowed only for composite images.
My normal workflow is to take my photo, then do basic white balance/color correction in a photo editor to more closely approximate the real color (it is very easy for cameras to be way off on white balance) then cropping the photo. Is that allowed?

Yes, it's allowed.
