I know, I know—not everybody's into Valentine's Day. In 2007, however, GV took advantage of the occasion to stage a poetry contest. 
We received 28 entries  in several languages, most of which you can see in the comments section of the announcement post . Our judge was GVer and published poet Nicholas Laughlin.  We also offered a People's Choice  award.
Here's an excerpt from Nicholas's eloquent judge's report, which I'd recommend you read in its entirety. Also because it will tell you who won!:
. . . judging was made “easier” by eliminating the seven poems that overlooked a key contest rule on subject matter: that “entries must in some way have to do with … blogging/citizen media”. I'd usually be the first to say that, in poetry, there are no rules, but this is a Global Voices contest, and it seems apt to insist that the winning poem relate in some way to GV's core mission. I was particularly sorry to lose Harinjaka's lovely “l'Amour ‘MoraMora'” , with its gentle Malagasy refrain; also Geoffrey Philp's “Bachata” , in which music is the food of love; Des Donnelly's wistful “If” ; Kai C's yearning “A Beautiful Valentine's Day” ; Nabeel Zeeshan's passionate poem with its hyperbolised imagery, “The red sun comes out of eclipse”; Sikanda's excerpt from a “saga” about two lovers named Oliverio and Alejandra ; and Rethabile Masilo's “A Tourist in Maseru” , with its clever opening lines: “Love from the start was touch and go / when both our hands / at that / bazaar / opted for the sole, ripe mango”.
