Asia Television Forum & Market (ATF) is gearing for yet another great year. Two prominent pitching competitions are back again with aim of discovering new content ideas for TV formats and animation.
The ATF “Formats Pitch” is a platform for creators and producers to pitch their new and original non-scripted entertainment formats. Backed by leading international distributor all3media international, the competition is seeking ideas from all the creative minds from Asia Pacific.
The Formats Pitch carries a prize money of S$5,000 and the winning pitch will get an opportunity to work with all3media international to develop the format, making it ready to pitch to broadcasters.
While the “Animation Pitch” is looking out for fresh, new animation project ideas, targeting young audience and suitable for broadcasting platforms.
The best animation pitch will be rewarded with a prize worth US$19,000, including a US2,500 cash award and a consultancy package where India’s largest animation production company – Green Gold Animation Pvt Ltd – will work with the winner to develop the winning concept, readying it for pitching to broadcasters.
The entries for both pitches are now open (until 23 September for the Formats and 5 November for the animation pitch), and the winners will be announced at ATF on 6 December in Singapore.
