BUG BATTLE - Paper for Water insect contest!

Postby Tankoda » August 27th, 2019, 9:42 pm

Welcome to Paper for Water's BUG BATTLE origami contest!
Image
The contest will have two divisions - models that are your own design, and models by other designers. Top prize of $250 for own design and $150 for other designers!! In order to enter, you MUST send your finished model to Paper for Water, where it may be used in a temporary public display at Texas discovery gardens. YOU CAN receive your model back after the end of the Texas State Fair, during which the models will be displayed. In order to receive your model back, you must include $10 ($20 for non USA) to cover shipping in addition to the $15 entry fee.
All funds raised by this contest will benefit http://www.paperforwater.org/ - a fantastic Dallas, TX based charity that uses origami to raise money for water projects in developing countries - read more about them on their website.

Original designs will be judged based on the finished model and the technical merit of the CP to determine the winner. A copy of the crease pattern MUST be submitted with the entry in order to win.

Not-original designs will be judged by an online public poll.

Other things to note:
-All entries must fit the theme of insects, but other arthropods (terrestrial arthropods only) such as arachnids are allowed. -Old designs and folds are allowed!! Your model does not have to be designed and/or folded specifically for this contest
-You can enter as many times as you want to!
-ALL ENTRIES must be received by Paper for Water by September 16th. (If the model is SENT by the sixteenth but not received until later, it may be disqualified).
-The best bugs received will be put on public display at the Texas Discovery Gardens during the Texas State Fair attended by over two million people! Designer and folder will be credited in the display, so this is a great opportunity for some real exposure!

The full list of details and the official entry form can be found here: http://www.paperforwater.org/contests/bug-battle

PLEASE ENTER AND SPREAD THE WORD!

Seriously, all the money raised from this will help save lives, so the more entries, the better. Please help me to spread the word - email it out to all your friends, shout it from the rooftops, contact newspapers, WHATEVER!!!!

Thanks!

This is pretty cool!
My only concern is the short notice. It would be nice to have another week or two for refining the designs.
After the fall, we rise.

Yeah, I'm sorry about that. Couldn't get the word out any sooner.
Old designs are okay though!

Contest UPDATE!
Competitors – big update to the contest! We will now reveal the judge for the own-design portion of the contest… Our judge will be the world-renown origami designer, lecturer of electrical engineering at MIT, and board member of OrigamiUSA for many years, Jason Ku! An accomplished and internationally respected origami designer and artist, we are honored to have Jason as the judge of this contest.

The second announcement is that Paper for Water will be attending OrigamiUSA’s Pacific Coast Origami Convention (PCOC)! If you are planning on attending PCOC, please come meet us! Additionally, we will be picking up entries to the contest at PCOC – so if you are attending, and plan to enter the contest, but are afraid that you don’t have enough time to complete the model and allow for shipping, FEAR NOT! Bring your model to PCOC, and Paper for Water will bring it back to Dallas for the display, and then ship it back (if you would like your model returned).
That’s all for now.

ONE WEEK LEFT
Contest update! For those competitors not in America who are worried that they will not be able to get their model to us before 9/16 with shipping times:
We will honor international entries that arrive before 9/24. Ship by airmail ASAP and register online (link in bio), and your entry will still be included in the contest and display if it is chosen. The only downside is that we will probably not have time to include credit to you in the signage. We'll still put your name by your model, just less fancy.


Also - Gerardo - Thanks! More than a year now, I am very involved with them now. More on that soon.
