We’re Having a Flying Dog Twitter Haiku Contest

17 syllables.




That’s Haiku.  And we’re having a Twitter Haiku contest.  Here’s how to participate:

  1. Write a Flying Dog Haiku. “What’s a Flying Dog Haiku,” you ask? That’s for you to decide and us to judge.
  2. Post it on twitter with “@flyingdog” at the beginning. the @flyingdog is not part of your haiku.
  3. Do it before Noon on Feb 18, 2009.
  4. The top 5 haikus will be chosen by our esteemed panel of Neal Stewart (Prime Minister of Marketing/@nealstewart), Josh Mishell (Visual Viceroy/@joshmishell),  Jim Caruso (Flying Dog CEO), Stephanie Kerchner (PR and Events Ninja/@stephkerchner) and maybe a few more people.
  5. Yes, it should be creative.
  6. Yes, we like to see our name in lights, so including something about Flying Dog earns brownie points with the judges.  Maybe something about Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson, Ralph Steadman – you get the point.  Go to our website for some creative motivation.
  7. The top 5 Twitter Haikus will receive $50 gift certificate to our online store.
  8. Must be 21 to enter and/or win.
  9. All entries must be posted to Twitter.com by NOON, Feb 18.
  10. The judges decision is final.  Believe us, they’re not screwing around.

And yes, this contest was inspired by Beer Haiku Daily.

can we make multiple attempts? or is the first haiku our only allowed entry?

Cokert – if you want to do multiple entries, knock your socks off! We’re looking for the best and most creative entries, so quantity doesn’t much matter if they’re a piece of crap. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

[…] Flying Dog Brewery is having a Flying Dog haiku contest. Your job is to come up with a Flying Dog Haiku (whatever you think that is) and submit it to them […]
