IAFOR Vladimir Devidé Haiku Award

The IAFOR Vladimir Devidé Haiku Award was founded by Dr Drago Štambuk, former Croatian Ambassador to Japan, and Dr Joseph Haldane, Chairman of IAFOR, and named in tribute to Vladimir Devidé’s vision and passion for haiku.

The IAFOR Vladimir Devidé Haiku Award is an open competition for previously unpublished haiku written in the English language. The award is for haiku regardless of whether in the traditional or modern style; as such, it aims to transcend haiku divisions in the unifying spirit of Vladimir Devidé. The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) is proud to organise the award as part of The Asian Conference on Arts & Humanities (ACAH), with the kind support of the Haiku International Association (HIA), Haiku Unesco Promotion Council and The Haiku Foundation.
