About Haiku

Originating in Japan, haiku is the shortest form of poetry in the world. In a short descriptive verse, it captures a moment in the poet’s life or simply expresses the beauty of nature.

Since 2014, the Golden Triangle BID has hosted the Golden Haiku poetry contest to bring pops of warmth, color, and inspiration to the streets of downtown DC during the late winter months.

 We invite the public to write and submit original, contemporary haiku for this temporary community art project. In 2021, we introduced a youth category, inviting students to explore haiku and perhaps become published poets. The contest is open to all ages, worldwide.

Submissions are reviewed by an expert panel of judges; winning poets receive prizes, and winning haiku are displayed on colorful street signs in the tree boxes lining the streets of the Golden Triangle neighborhood.

The contest’s popularity has grown each year; it is internationally recognized and beloved by locals and visitors alike. In 2021, we received entries from 60 countries, 49 states, and the District of Columbia. See winning haiku from 2021 here.

Golden Haiku 2022 Theme: “REBOOT AND REBLOOM”

This year’s Golden Haiku competition is helping unite our global community. In a time when the world has been brought together in unprecedented ways, the Golden Haiku competition is an opportunity to connect with others by sharing and celebrating hope through words.

This year’s haiku theme is “Reboot and Rebloom.” Acknowledging the challenges of the current time, the theme invites a worldwide community of reflection, hope, and joy.

Golden Haiku 2022 Contest GUIDELINES

Golden Haiku follows the Haiku Society of America’s guidelines for modern haiku, which does not require the traditional 5-7-5 structure. Removing the strict structural requirements for syllables frees the author to use evocative language to capture a moment or expression of beauty in a short, descriptive verse. Learn more about how to write a contemporary haiku here.

All entries are reviewed and judged by a distinguished panel of published haiku experts (see below) who select first, second, and third place winners, a regional favorite, and Youth Category winners.

Golden Haiku 2022 Contest Prize

Authors of the winning haiku will receive:
First Place – $500
Second Place – $200
Third Place – $100
Regional/DC Winner – $200
Youth Category Winners:
High School Winner – $150
Elementary/Middle School Winner – $75

Winning haiku—along with a selection of honorable mentions—are displayed in hundreds of tree boxes along some of Washington DC’s most iconic streets from March through early May. The colorful haiku signs brighten the winter landscape for all passersby to enjoy, reminding them during those late winter months that spring is just around the corner.

Each participant may enter only once, submitting a maximum of two original, self-authored haiku via the submission form. Winners will be notified by email in early March, and publicly announced in mid-March.
