Contests and Awards / Irish Haiku Society Haiku Competition - RESULTS
« on: September 28, 2019, 10:11:52 AM »
Well done to Frank Hooven who won this year's competition.


The IHS International Haiku Competition offers prizes of

Euro 150, Euro 50 and Euro 30

for unpublished haiku/senryu in English.

In addition there will be up to seven Highly Commended haiku/senryu.

Entrants may win more than one prize.
 Each haiku must be accompanied by a fee of Euro 3 or £2.50 sterling or ¥ 500, or USA $4. Or with each seven haiku: Euro 20 or £15 sterling or ¥ 3000 or $25.

£125 will be awarded to each of the two best haiku and tanka entries and £50 to each of two runners-up £125 will be awarded to each of the two best haibun entries and £50 to one  runner-up

The entry fee for each category for up to 3 in each category is £5.50 and £1.10 per entry thereafter (incl. the 10% fee).

It looks as though you can send an entry without an illustration

A lot of my haiku come from direct experience or memories of an experience that is somehow prompted by an event in the present, Rich. I therefore used notes facility on my phone to jot down ideas as they arrive. I’m not sure that a lot of what I write cones from reading (although I guess that everything we read gets filed in our head somewhere, whether we like it or not) As a visual artist, sometimes visiting an art exhibition works wonders for me in terms of inspiration, but a walk along the shores of Carlingford Lough around the corner from my home on the east coast of Ireland usually delivers. I read a lot of poetry (other than short form) and sometimes a particular image can trigger a haiku moment. For research purposes and to keep up to date with contemporary haiku I dip into the digital resources here in THF, like Anna, and read all the online journals from around the world. I like both fairly traditional and avant garde haiku.
