after a three month break and some struggle to (eventually) clearing up all the contest backlog, we are now free to host a new contest. :aww:

the contest HAIGA will be open from the day this journal goes public till 15:59:59 Friday 15 March, 2013 in GMT.

this contest is looking for haijin to write an original haiku/tanka and make a minimalistic, relevant and matching picture to accompany the haiku.

the picture can be either a photograph or a painting/drawing.


rules and regulation for the contest are as follow:

:bulletred: please submit your entries to the contest folder "2013 - Haiga". the entries will be automatically approved. you can submit entry as long as you are a member of this club.

:bulletred: every member can submit up to two entries, only one can win.

:bulletred: the entries have to be new deviations made after today. the picture must be made by the haijin him/herself. please do not use stock images or images from any search engines.

:bulletred: you must submit the entries to the contest folder before 15 March, 15:59 GMT. the folder will be close after this time, and no more entries will be accepted.

:bulletred: the haiku/tanka must be able to stand-alone apart from the image, i.e. can be understood without the image. verses that relies on the image to explain the meaning cannot win the contest.

the haiku must follow all the rules of traditional haiku. 5-7-5 syllables' pretty sentences that do not show the spirit of haiku (minimalism, clear mental image) will be moved to the "is this a haiku?" folder.

:bulletred: only one haiku to an image, no chain/set of multiple haiku/tanka allowed in one single entry.

:bulletred: depending on the number of entries we will have the first, second and third place and honorable mentions.

Although I like all the haiku poems listed, and even find a few of them to be outstanding, I'd just like to point out that only the second honorable mentions meets the following rule listed for the contest.

--- the haiku must follow all the rules of traditional haiku. 5-7-5 syllables' pretty sentences that do not show the spirit of haiku (minimalism, clear mental image) will be moved to the "is this a haiku?" folder.

Granted first place is only one syllable off on the first line. Unless I'm missing something really big here. Like, I'm not complaining that I didn't win, that's fine. I just joined to try to get some contructive feedback. I just don't think it's fair to state rules for a contest, then give first second and third place to pieces that don't meet those rules. It may limit those who followed the standard 5-7-5 format.

I guess you did misunderstand the rules of the contests. We emphasized many, many times that our club does not advocate the requirement of sticking to 5-7-5 syllables' count rule. 5-7-5 is only for lines written in japanese- although even many famous classic japanese haiku by masters did not adhere to this rule. Although on the other hand we are not discriminating against 5-7-5, saying they are not haiku.
'5-7-5 pretty sentences that do not show the spirit of haiku (minimalism, clear mental image)' is mentioned exactly because many thought haiku must be 5-7-5, but then they missed out on the more important thing about this genre, which is "minimalism, clear mental image".
i hope these clarifies the rule of the contests. :)

I think the exact rules should have been stated more clearly. If we were using the Wikipedia standard rules they would be:

1. The essence of haiku is "cutting". This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas
2. Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae), in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 on respectively. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this is inaccurate as syllables and on are not the same.
3. A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from an extensive but defined list of such words.


What we did say was that poems of 5-7-5 that did not show the spirit of haiku would not be accepted into the contest at all. So you did well to make it in!

This is a good lesson for all the admins in making the rules more clear so it is easy to enter and to judge.

Oh. Well I suppose that bit makes sense then. I wish that had been made a bit more clear up front as I would have tried something a little different.
