Adelaide’s yearly anime and gaming bonanza AVCon 2017 is fast approaching and as Marcus covered recently, Retrospekt will once again have a big presence at the event. Make sure to check out that post to get a better idea of what kind of amusements and shenanigans you can look forward to from us.

If you happen to be attending this year make sure to visit the retro gaming area we’ll have set up and while you’re there consider entering the Haiku By You competition.

Retrospekt Video Game Haiku┬áis a video series that’s been running on this here site for five years now and the next planned evolution of the show will be a new project Iv’e been working on. The “Haiku By You” video’s will be much like the past series of Retrospekt Video Game Haiku but will contain submissions by you lovely folk at AVCon 2017.

Simply come up with a neat little poem following the usual haiku structure (the first line has five syllables, the second seven syllables, and the third has five). Make it related to gaming, anime, pop culture, or just something funny and cool – have a good time with it! Fill out the entry form at AVCon to enter and every haiku you come up with wins a Steam game key. It may also win one of the many major prizes which range from a Pokemon plush, Pop! Vinyls, a US NTSC Super Nintendo game and more.

Just a fraction of the prizes up for grabs!

So here’s a head start to ponder that poetry and we look forward to seeing you at AVCon 2017! For those interstate, international or who’re just unable to attend we’ll have a way for you to enter and win some cool stuff soon – stay tuned.
