Kikakuza International Haibun Contest 2010 Results

Nobuyuki and I decided not to award a Grand Prix this year as, fine though many of the entries were, we felt we could not find a truly outstanding piece. The endings especially seemed, more often than not, unsatisfactory. In order to increase the field next year, the entry fee may be abolished, we hear. See our separate Kikakuza Contest Guidelines page (top right) this autumn for details. Go there now to read the two Highly Commended pieces from this year’s Contest. Our sincere thanks to all who sent in their works. The results follow. Of the six populated continents, only South America did not produce an awardee this year!

Highly Commended:

Night Fishing with Daddy, Phillippa Yaa de Villiers, South Africa

the godless month, Jim Kacian, USA

Honourable Mentions:

Psyche, Angelee Deodhar, India
