The Haiku Foundation Touchstone Awards for Individual Haiku

The Touchstone Awards for Individual Poems will be bestowed annually on haiku and senryu that represent a noteworthy addition to English-language haiku in the estimation of a distinguished panel of haiku poets, editors and scholars. The inaugural Awards are open to any English-language haiku or senryu published in calendar-year 2010. Each author of an award-winning poem will receive a commemorative stone with their poem and name engraved on it, emblematic of his or her contribution to the foundations of English-language haiku.

Each poet may nominate no more than two poems, only one of which may be the author’s own work. I've submitted my nonimations. Have you? The deadline for submission is December 31, 2010. And it's so easy to do with the on-line entry form.
