Call for HAIGA/ Photo-Haiku


The editors of Serow: Journal of the Akita International Haiku Network are now accepting HAIGA 俳画 submissions to be included in our next edition, Serow Vol. 5, which will be published in early spring 2022.

HAIGA may be a collaborative effort (for example a poet, an artist, and/or a calligrapher).  In such cases, please include FULL NAMES, hometowns, and email contact info for each person involved.
• The image must not be borrowed/copyrighted material!
• The haiku must be the poet’s own composition!

NOTE: Preference will be given to HAIKU composed in 17 syllables AND to those that reference Yūgen 幽玄 (mystery, depth)—the theme of last year’s contest.


Please include:

1) Photo of the artist/poet (JPEG, PNG, or other acceptable format. The higher resolution the better.)
2) Artist Bio: About 400 words introducing yourself (artist Bio) and a brief reflection/ your experience with the art form.
3) 3 to 5 images (photos, drawings, paintings) and accompanying haiku. Images should be as high resolution as possible. Scanned images should also be as high resolution as possible (600 dpi or more) and sent as JPEG or PNG.

The haiku text may be included in the image OR sent separately (as a Word.doc, PDF, etc.)


**We regret that we will not be able to include all of the submissions.**

February 15, 2022
