Political art has come into its own (and moved on to the streets) in recent years. In the run-up to this year’s General Election, the excellent Upstart campaign asked for submissions from artists, illustrators, writers, designers and film-makers to come up with an antidote to the candidate election posters. Anti Room’s Nuala Ní Chonchúir wrote an election haiku (seen here, nestled cosily between posters for Labour and Independent Paul Sommerville) and gave us an idea.
We want you to embrace your inner Yeats and tap that Seamus Heaney vein and hit us your best election haiku.
We’ll even offer a mystery prize for the best one.
Let the 5-7-5 syllable madness begin!
