Another Haiku Contest!!!
Out of appreciation for Australian Rules Football, I dedicate this haiku contest to all who are enjoying the march to the Grand Final. Happy September!
@felixgarciap graciously donated 0.20 SBDs to this contest, which will go to the runner-up. Yep, TWO chances to pick up some easy SBDs. Life's good!
Read below for more about the contest instructions, theme, how to participate, awards, and how I'll select a winner.
Write a haiku about rain. Anything relating to rain.
This must be a one-stanza, traditional 5-7-5 haiku like the ones described here: http://www.kidzone.ws/poetry/haiku.htm . Here’s an example:
You may submit multiple haikus, but you need to make each haiku its own reply. Each one will be considered a separate entry.
This theme comes from @four20, who's getting .005 SBDs from me just for the idea. If you have any suggestions, post them on your blog, tag me, and reply below with the link to that post! Just might snag the idea for my next contest!
How to Participate
- Reply below with your haiku. Deadine: 11:59 pm UTC, September 15, 2018.
- Upvote this post. Deadline: 11:59 pm UTC, September 15, 2018.
That's it! But...
You should also resteem this post to increase the winner's prize and give yourself some free exposure! You can participate without resteeming -- I don't give preference -- but if you do resteem, it only helps you.
Also, post your entry on your own blog! Mention @vdux and I'll give you an upvote and resteem your post.
And, collect a bonus point for each person you tag in your contest entry. More players, more prizes, more fun!
- 1.5 SBD
- Half of this post's author awards
- One free resteem from me for any of the winner's posts. (You choose the post. There's no time limit but I reserve the right to refuse resteem any post I consider offensive or indecent -- I'll simply ask you for a different, non-offensive post.)
One runner-up gets:
- 0.2 SBD
- One free resteem from me for any of the winner's posts. (You choose the post. There's no time limit but I reserve the right to refuse to resteem any post I consider offensive or indecent -- I'll simply ask you for a different, non-offensive post.)
How I Will Select the Winner
Within 2 days after the deadline, I will read all entries and choose a winner and runner-up. While I'll take upvotes into consideration, my selection will reflect my personal preference based on the entries you submit.
Feel free to reuse a haiku from the past and write as many as you want!
