The Kukai - a haiku contest, where each person submits a haiku, and then, becomes a judge. When all the poems are compiled in a list, the contestants comment, vote, and give scores to poems of their choice. One cannot comment on, nor vote for one’s own poem. At the end of the voting process winners emerge, the selection based on votes by the kukai’s contestants.

Happy Holidays 2012-13
Kukai No 39 was the last for this year 2012. We rest in November and December.
I have been prompted several times over this year for a Poets Choice Kukai; so what i will do is collect the first 100 winners from when our kukai started and prepare a list for Poets Choice; however, this kukai will happen in 2013 .
We will begin the year 2013 with a Poets Choice Kukai; after which, we will continue with our monthly themes
Remember in December/January The Twelve Days Of Christmas' at Lunch Break i welcome your participation; and will remind you later again this year about it

May I suggest that for the poets' choice kukai, the rule that 3 points is the maximum one may assign to a single poem be followed? This rule is otherwise common (universal?) in kukai. In a few instances, results of the CKK have been distorted by one person assigning 6 points to one poem; here in the US, we call that stuffing the ballot box.ReplyDelete
Thank you Bill i will remember to include this in the Poets Choice Kukai; Happy HolidaysReplyDelete
I agree with Bill. Wondered this same six-points "politics" too. And if a voter thinks there is only one text to give his/her points, so let's that be max 3 point, and just once?ReplyDelete
Also if there is none "good" text, so why not allow not to vote.
Sometimes I counted the points from Shiki Kukai voting and I think there is quite often many voters didn't vote at all? So what?
I have made small summary of CKK in 2012 (# 31-39)taking into account places it the top three
1. Bill Kenney, USA 3 0 1
2. Bouwe Brouwer, Ned 1 2 0
3. Cara Holman, USA 1 1 1
Marleen Hulst, Ned 1 1 1
1. USA (5 haijins) 5 3 2
2. Ned (2) 2 3 1
3. Rom (5) 1 1 3
