Haigaonline accepts open submissions for our "Haiku this Haiga" feature in the Traditional Haiga section, and for our "Challenges" in the Contemporary Haiga section.
I. HAIKU THIS HAIGA:
In this feature, we offer a painting by Mary Rodning for our readers to try their hand at poeming. The selected haiku will receive our full Traditional Haiga treatment: translation into Japanese by Hiromi Inoue, calligraphy by Shisen, assembly into a haiga by Jasminka Djordjevic, and a musical setting by Choshi.
Look for the results of our December 2009 Haiku this Haiga, and a new painting, in the December 2010 issue.
II. HAIGA CHALLENGE:
In our next Haiga Challenge, we'll revive an old tradition here at Haigaonline: Family Haiga! There's something special about collaborative haiga when the participants are family members: husband and wife, parent and child, brothers/sisters, grandparents, cousins--is there someone in your life who's a kindred spirit, whom you might ask to join you in creating a haiga for our December issue?
The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2010. You may submit as many as you like. Include "Haigaonline--Family Haiga Challenge" in your subject line and mail to email@example.com.
