Rewarding Excellence and Innovation in the Haiku Genre

The Haiku Foundation, as part of its mission to expand possibilities for English-language haiku, created the Touchstone Awards Series in 2010. The goal: to reward excellence and innovation in the haiku genre. The Awards recognize work published during every calendar year. The results are determined through a year-long nomination and selection process, and are released in April of the following year. Award-recipients are selected by independent panels comprised of authorities in the field.

Deadlines for the latest awards are announced on our  blog. See Touchstone Awards.
