Haibun Contest 2011 Guidelines
Ideally, there will be one Grand Prix, a number of Za Prizes
(Highly Commended), and some Honourable Mentions, too. The
authors of entries chosen for the first two of these
categories will receive prizes as well as certificates from
Kikakuza. In the spring, a bilingual bulletin will be
published in Japan (there is a Japanese Haibun Section,
too), and the results displayed both on the Kikakuza
homepage and here on the Hailstone Icebox. Check back in
April? You can read last year’s top four pieces on a
separate page here right now (Kikakuza
’10 Winning Haibun).
