The Jack Stamm Haiku Award

For the last few years, we have been running a contest for the paper wasp Jack Stamm Haiku Award.
The winning haiku for each year will be found on the 'Selected Haiku' page.

The contest is now being run for the twelfth time.

First prize is A$150.00, Second Prize is A$75.00 and Third Prize is A$50.00.

Another paper wasp anthology will be published from the entries to this contest.

An entry fee of A$10.00 (from within Australia and New Zealand, if paid in banknotes or cheques drawn on an Australian bank in Australia) or US$10.00 (international entries) applies to each sheet of three haiku submitted for judging, to cover contest costs and the publication of the anthology.

Each entry of three haiku must be clearly marked on the back of the sheet or card with the entrant's full name, address, including country and postal/zip code and email address, if available, and your preferred pen name for use if selection for publication. Judging is double blind. The judges' decision is final, no correspondence will be entered into and entries will not be returned.

The deadline is February 1st 2011. Please send your entries to Katherine Samuelowicz, paper wasp, 14 Fig Tree Pocket Road, Chapel Hill, Queensland 4069, Australia. Email entries will not be accepted. Results will be published in paper wasp 17 (2) in June 2011, and the Anthology in July 2011
