HBO Promotes "The Wire" with UG Contest

HBO is collecting online entries for "The Wire Spoken Word Battle" through a user-generated contest hosted by and developed by Deep Focus, an interactive agency.

Contestants may upload a video performance of their urban slam poetry to the site where it will be judged and then voted on by other users.

", The Wire and the spoken word community share a common interest in urban politics," says Sabrina Caluori, account director at Deep Focus. "This contest provides a forum for audiences to address The Wire's central themes and issues through the use of conscious user-generated content."
