    Dear members of the NF Community,

    I am pleased to introduce KCC's new haiku contest. Members will have two weeks to submit an original haiku, at least three stanzas in length. The theme for this contest is summer.

    All participants will receive 30k rep points. Once the deadline is reached, I will create a voting thread for members to select their favorite entries. Contest points will be awarded to participants that receive the first, second, and third highest amount of votes.

    1st Place- Five Contest Points
    2nd Place- Three Contest Points
    3rd Place- One Contest Point

    Entries are due to the KCC Submission Thread ( ). A couple of things to keep in mind:

    • Please make sure that your haiku is an original entry.
    • Please try your best to upload a quality piece.
    • Your entry should have at least three separate haikus (nine lines).
    • Compliments and constructive feedback to other members is encouraged.

    Entries are due on August 17th at 2:30 PM UTC . Following that date, I will put up a poll that lasts for four days.



    Following this contest, we will complete a second Short Story Contest. There will be a separate poll to vote on the theme for this one.

    I think I’m gonna give this a try.

    If I made this a summer themed and Naruto related, will I still be able to get NP for this too if I use the hashtag for it? Or is that already over :hmm

    You should still be able to get NPP from what I understand @Majin Lu
    And it is still going.
    Make sure to tag Majin Lu when you make your submission and hashtag it #naruto20

    And when you say 3 stanzas, do you mean 3 consecutive haikus?

    Yeah I meant three haikus as one entry. Changed language in the first post to clarify.

    Woo! Excited to see it.

    Haikus are so limiting.
    I'm have difficulty figuring out how I want to word things.

    It might be because it lasts two weeks. Usually people submit stuff at the last minute.

    But yeah it's kinda strange. I also polled too to check interest in the contest.
