On Screen Manitoba Awarding $20,000 to the Best Pitch

By David Klassen

A two-day forum put on On Screen Manitoba will explore the world of television and interactive digital media and how they are integrating together.

A $20,000 prize will be on the line at All Access, which will include keynote speakers, panels, case studies and round tables featuring some of the industries’ leading minds and decision makers.

Participants will pitch their idea for a non-fiction/non-scripted Manitoba project in front of industry professionals on November 9 and 10 at the Fairmont Winnipeg.

The three-minute pitch will be followed up by three minutes of feedback or questions offered by the jury. After all pitches are completed the jury will deliberate and choose the winner who will be awarded a $20,000 license fee to make their project a reality.

Application packages are due by 5 p.m. CT on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 by e-mail to stephanie@onscreenmanitoba.com. Finalists will be notified by October 20.

Guest speakers and panelists will be announced shortly.
