I would like to thank all the participants in the Jane Reichhold Haiga competition this year. I also want to give a big thank you to the judges (Steve Hodge and Hemapriya Chellappan) that had the challenge of having to pick winners from a large contingent of excellent work. My congratulations to the winners and to the runners up. Please see below for all the results with commentary.
Thank you to everyone that send in their haibun. This is a jam-packed issue full of variety! It was a true delight to edit my first full haibun issue. But now after all that reading, I may need a break. Our new co-editor Hemapriya Chellappan with take the editor’s desk for next month’s issue. Go check out the submissions page!
Due to some timing and technical issues, the Jane Reichhold Haiga Contest results will not be released this year at their normal date of November 5th. It will take us a few days to dot all of our i’s and cross all of our t’s. My sincerest apologies for the inconvenience and for the delay. November 10th will be our new date for contest results this year. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
A big thank you to Hemapriya Chellappan for guest editing this great issue. It’s a wonderful issue from front to back. Another fantastic Failed Haiku senryu read.
