Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival

The results of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival’s annual haiku invitational have been announced and are available at:

Each year the Festival organisers do a wonderful job in making haiku an important part of the celebrations. This year, Australia’s own Beverley George was invited to judge all five sections of the competition.

Australian poets were among the successful entrants with David Terelinck winning first prize in the international section and Glen Fletcher and Quendryth Young receiving Sakura Awards.
