Announcing the World Monuments Fund 2013 Haiku Contest Winners


World Monuments Fund Statement:
The ties between poems and monuments are both ancient and contemporary, abstract and concrete. This past April, in conjunction with National Poetry Month in the United States, hundreds joined World Monuments Fund in exploring the special relationship between monuments and poetry by submitting entries to our second annual haiku contest.



The six award-winning haiku each bear witness to the world's treasured places, beautifully conveying both a strong sense of place and identification with that place. We are excited to share a video of the winning haiku, paired with evocative imagery from the sites that inspired them.

Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to all who participated, especially our judge, Alan Summers, a recipient of the Japan Times Award and the Ritsumeikan University of Kyoto Peace Museum Award for haiku.
