Announcing the first-ever Alima Pure Haiku Contest

Posted on September 29, 2009 by terresa | 4 Comments

Who doesn't like haiku?  It is a form of poetry that almost anyone can participate in and enjoy.  So pull out your pencils and start writing!

The rules are simple.  Pick an Alima Pure shade (not an entire category).  Write a haiku about that shade.  Submit your haiku to:  contests@alimapure.com, and be sure to include your full name and address.  Entries will be accepted from now until October 16.  A winner will be selected each week, from October 8 to December 17, and the winning haiku will be posted on the Alima Pure blog, Facebook page and/or website.  By entering the contest, you are giving us permission to publish your haiku in those locations.  (Authors will be credited by first name, last initial and city.)  Authors of each published haiku will be awarded the product that is the subject of the haiku.

A reminder about how to write haiku--three lines, with the first and third lines having five syllables, the second line having seven syllables.  The internet is full of "how to" suggestions for writing technically great haiku, but keep in mind that we won't be judging on how true to the form you are (aside from the 5-7-5 form), we will be judging completely subjectively.  If it expresses how we feel about a certain color, makes us smile or gives us a new appreciation for a color, it has a good chance to win.
