2020 Akita International Haiku Contest RESULTS!


The Akita International Haiku Network is pleased to announce the winners of the 9th Annual Akita International Haiku Contests. It truly was an “international” contest, with poets from nearly 50 countries and 5 continents. In total, there were 607 haiku!

We would like to thank all the judges, teachers, and haiku clubs around the globe who helped make this year’s contest a success.

The winners and runners-up from each of the four categories will be featured in Volume 4 of Serow, due to be published in 2021.

Finally, we would like to say, wholeheartedly, that we enjoyed reading all of the haiku; and, we hope that each of the poets who participated in this year’s contest will participate again next year, too.

Please enjoy the selected haiku here.
