A couple of days later than planned, but with all of the latest news and site updates I figured it was appropriate. Regardless, the votes have been tallied, the winners decided, and prizes/extras prepared. The three top winners will be contacted via PM about their winnings - which, hopefully, all three of them can benefit from.
The full list of participants and their poems can be found in the comment jump. Some of the voting was pretty close, but luckily the top three winners came out cleanly. Determined by our various members who voted, here are our Haiku masters:
There you have it. All of the participating poets showed lots of fun and creativity (as creative as you can get with a Haiku), but the lulz of Secad's won us over. My hat off to her and our other two winners.
A big thank you goes to LoN for making the winners' banners. Also, as a special treat and thank you to everyone who entered, Doggy Ears has custom made Pokecharms-styled Stationery for anyone interested to print out for personal usage (cheers, DE~!). It is available in two sizes due to varying resolutions: Large version and Smaller version.
And that about wraps everything up. Thanks again to everyone who participated and helped organize the contest, and here's to hoping next year's is even better =)
