Manage This, the Extensis community blog, is hosting a Helvetica haiku contest in honour of the world premiere of the Helvetica documentary film by Gary Hustwit (March 13) at SXSW. The award is one of the limited edition fine art posters from the movie (left). Entries must be in by 3:00 PST, Friday March 23. More info on the film (including a screening schedule, trailers, blogs and other interesting stuff) can be found at its website.

Update: The contest winners were announced today (March 28). Check them out (not including mine, alas) here. Lots of fun and clever haikus.
