Intro
New edition of the award. The contest is open to the general public, as well as to well-established artists, designers and jewellers from all over the universe. The use of materials can be various with combining six-pack rings.
Inspiration & Empowerment
Participate as a duo with your high design pieces to inspire and empower women beyond social class. Designers, as Masters, create your own Origomu design and inspire your protégé, an underprivileged woman that you want to help (low-income, ex-convict or friend).

The Origomu Movement is concerned with environmental and social matters. Origomu is a “movement” that motivates and teaches people how to create beautiful necklaces from plastic six-pack rings. Origomu's vision is "Environmental awareness through design", using plastic six-pack rings; those that every year threaten the lives of thousands of shore birds and marine animals around the world.

Conditions

Origomu has created a contest to select the best three pieces:
1st Prize $4,000
2nd Prize $2,000
3rd Prize $1,000


The best 500 necklaces will be published in the book, Origomu: Change The World With Your Own Hands.
The contest is open to the general public, as well as to well-established artists, designers and jewellers from all over the universe. The use of materials can be various with combining six-pack rings. The rings can be manipulated within your creation.
We have been asked by our curators for some requirements in order to participate in the book publishing.

We need you to take a picture of your design adhering to the following directions:
-All necklaces should be displayed on the neck
-Try to manage the lighting so it has some texture/interesting chiaroscuro

Some thought should be given to the presentation of the necklace.

The jury:
-Stephen Kaplan - Rector at The Altos de Chavon School of Design - Parsons Affiliate
-Karen Bachman - Jewelry Professor of Alternative Materials Jewelry at FIT And Pratt
-Sully Bonnelly - Fashion Designer
-Bianca Cortinas - Fashion Designer and Artist
-Arnaldo Vargas - Photographer
-Laura Pou - Stylist

Pieces will be judged based on three categories :
- Wearability
- How you inspired your protégé
- Originality
