The federal debt crisis may not seem the most natural subject for a Hollywood movie or best-selling book, but the Freedom Club and Power Line blog are trying to change all that. The two organizations are offering a $100,000 top prize for the best dramatization of the economic problems that threaten to engulf the country.

“Any medium of communication is eligible: video, song, screenplay, television commercial, painting, Power Point, essay, performance art or anything else,” Power Line says on its website.

“We need a marketing campaign: a sustained effort to use the tools of modern communication to reach and educate every American, and to mobilize popular opinion to demand reform from the politicians in Washington,” the blog says.

It claims that one-third of the population understands the threat posed by the debt crisis, another one-third either doesn’t care or has something to gain from high government spending, so the remaining 33 percent can be swayed.

Besides the top prize, the runner-up will receive $15,000 in the contest, with two third-placed finishers getting $5,000 each. The deadline for entries is July 15.
