This challenge is organized by origamijuan. Thanks a lot for motivating all of us to create and contribute to this blog! I'm translating his message...

"Hi, ok some of you already know me for supporting origami. I would like to help Gerardo today with an exclusive challenge for this blog, I would like for many of you to participate.

Ok, I present to you this kitten so you can create the closest looking figure to this feline. The prize is one of the existing old books, it could be Kamiya's, the Insects one from Lang, one of the Tanteidan books (11, 13, 14 or 15). The figure, as we know, must be simple, it doesn't have to be too complicated. It must have the same paw gesture, without copying it from already existing figures, it must be new. Deadline: October 1st. You can place the photos here as you take them or wait till the very last day. You can't use preexisting figures, they will be eliminated from the challenge if they had already been created. Ok, I leave you this challenge, I hope many of you can participate".

How will we select the first place?

Starting today, exactly one month from the deadline, participants will get to comment whether they prefer being selected by voters or by a recognized judge. The voters would be those followers of Neorigami in facebook that aren't participating in the challenge and the judge would be Nick Robinson who has agreed to help; among a a wide variaty of models, he has a created different simple animal figures which makes him the right judge for this contest. The decision (voters or judge) that gets the most comments from the participants of the challenge wins!


Nick Robinson is a professional origami artist and author who has been folding paper for over 30 years. He has been a member of the British Origami Society for over 25 years and edited their magazine as well as maintaining their website since 1996. Nick has written 35 books about origami (including World's Best Origami, Origami Kit for Dummies, and Adult Origami AKA Very Naughty Origami). He has also supplied photographs for articles on paper-folding and has fulfilled numerous commercial and charitable origami commissions involving origami and paper art over the last 20 years, both within the UK and abroad.

    That's great -sebl- You gotta create an account, you'll find that button in the right column of the blog. Once you create and login to your account, you'll find around that same place a button saying "add a new model or article". Just fill out the form and voilà.

    I hope I'll see it here soon =D!

    Ok Ak_827, your model has been added to the challenge, but I need to know your decision between (1) voters or a (2) judge ASAP.

  • Enlace comentario Ak_827 Jueves 29 de Septiembre de 2011 23:45 Publicado por Ak_827

    I would rather have a judge decide the winner.

  • Enlace comentario joshuaorigami Sábado 01 de Octubre de 2011 18:33 Publicado por joshuaorigami

    My cat for the challenge is ready. You can find it here: http://neorigami.com/neo/index.php/en/animals/item/174-cat

    i prefer a judge

  • Enlace comentario Gerardo Lunes 03 de Octubre de 2011 22:13 Publicado por Gerardo

    16 Models are participating in the challenge!

    Now we are just waiting for the last creators to get their say between votes or judge.

  • Enlace comentario troyactus Martes 04 de Octubre de 2011 04:35 Publicado por troyactus

    No creo que sea necesario esperar a que todos den su opinion, pues ya la gran mayoria desea que sea un juez quien califique los modelos. (y esto lo digo sabiendo que soy de los pocos que pienso que es mejor elegir por votos :p)

    I think that there's no need to wait for everyone to choice between votes or judge, since the most of people want a judge to decide the winner. (i said this even if i'm one of those who thinks that the votes are the best way to elect the winner :p)

  • Enlace comentario Nick Robinson Martes 04 de Octubre de 2011 08:21 Publicado por Nick Robinson

    I'm really looking forward to see what pople come up with. Remember, what technique you've used isn't important (I'll be looking at photos). What is important is to try and capture life in the animal. One of my own cats has agreed to help me choose.

  • Enlace comentario Gerardo Jueves 06 de Octubre de 2011 17:17 Publicado por Gerardo

    We're waiting for Nick's veredict. While we do that, lets share our thoughts about the challenging models. Please... tell us your picks and why those in the Neorigami's wall in facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Neorigami/126908010732079

    We're dying to know =D

  • Enlace comentario Gerardo Lunes 10 de Octubre de 2011 04:02 Publicado por Gerardo

    We have a winner! In a couple of hours I will post Nick Robinson's veredict.
