At the 2021 Annual General Meeting it was announced that the first ever “David Lister Award” was to be presented to Vicente Palacios. The award is given in memory of David Lister, a former member of the British Origami Society who was greatly admired in the Origami world for his scholarship, in particular for his researches into origami history. He was the author of “The Lister List” of articles on all aspects of Origami.
Palacios is a fitting recipient of this award, having encouraged others to achieve origami greatness over many decades. In recognition of this, two models were taught following the AGM: “Perro Salchicha” by Palacios, taught by David Raynor, and “Four Thirsty Birds” by David Lister taught by Tony O’Hare.
