The Winners: LitroTV’s Transgression Competition

LitroTV had a fantastic response to its first competition, which asked for performance poets to send us an original spoken word piece based on our April theme of transgression.

Big and broad in its potential meanings, the possibilities were endless and and we loved watching each poets interpretation of the theme. But we finally came to the decision of awarding two winners who submitted two very different but equally brilliant submissions.

Our first winner is Ben Norris with his piece Dismembered Voices. As soon as the camera starts to roll, Ben sprints into his cautionary tale about moral transgression with an energy that demanded our attention.

Our second winner is Amy McCallum with her piece The Basis Of Something That’s A Bit More Than Nothing. With an emphasis on her words through her simplicity of style, Amy’s take on relational transgression caught our eye early on.

We will be showcasing the winning videos, along with more information about the poets, as part of our transgression issue later this month.
