The Second Japan-Russia Haiku Contest
(Guidelines for Submission)

April 30, 2013

Akita International Haiku Association

INTRODUCTION

In May, 2012, the Akita International Haiku Network launched the first Japan – Russia Haiku Contest as one of the links with the cultural exchange between Japan and Russia, wishing to provide an opportunity to mutually share haiku related to the theme of “the sea” (The Sea of Japan) which connects Japan and Russia.

The organizer hoped that the contest would serve as an opportunity to deepen mutual understanding among people, to promote the interaction of people’s views on Japan and Russia, as well as to convey the enjoyment of writing and reading haiku. The organizer also hoped that it would serve as an opportunity to strengthen and develop the sister city relationship between Akita and Vladiovostok, as well as to promote and increase cultural exchanges between Akita Prefecture and Primorsky Region.  

  428 haiku were submitted to the contest from students and haiku lovers in Japan as well as in Russia. In particular, 58 haiku were submitted by students and citizens almost all over Russia.  They were sent to the contest from those parts of Russia: Vladivostok, Sakhalin, Moscow, Moscow Oblast, Saint Petersburg, Magadan, Birobidzhan, Novosibirsk, Ufa, Blagoveshchensk, Sverdlovsk, Perm, Kalugo, Krasnodar, Tikhvin, The Chuvash Republic, The Republic of Tatarstan, and so on.

  The contest ended in a great success. Comments have been given on the contest. Some of them say that it should be held every year. And others say that all haiku lovers in the world should be given a chance to join such a global haiku contest.

As a result, we have decided to give the second Japan-Russia Haiku Contest with the Akita International Haiku Network, providing three language sections for haiku submission: the Japanese section, the Russian section, and the English section. We sincerely hope that you will submit your haiku according to the guidelines below.
