Post Ottawa International Animation Festival - Pitch THIS! contest
on: July 20, 2016, 10:46

The Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), North America’s leading animation film festival, is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for anyone with a great idea for an animated TV series! Corus Entertainment, a long-time OIAF partner, is offering a development deal in addition to Toon Boom animation software to the winner of Pitch THIS! at the event’s industry stream TAC (The Animation Conference), September 21—23, 2016.

TAC provides a chance for new-comers and professionals to network and keep up with industry trends while having access to the most creative, original and innovative animation out there. Every year TAC presents Pitch THIS!, a contest where two creators get the chance to pitch their new project to the TAC audience.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary, not only is there a development deal on the line, but the 2016 program has added a mentorship twist as well! This year TEN PITCHES will be selected and the creators paired with a mentor who will help them develop their idea. This is a rare opportunity for folks to work closely with a seasoned industry professional, and receive feedback on their project!

All ten pitches will be presented on Wednesday September 21st during TAC, where each contestant has only ten minutes to impress a small committee of experts. From this group, two lucky candidates will be selected to present their idea at the official Pitch THIS! event on Thursday, September 22 to a panel of broadcasters and the entire audience at TAC, an audience that includes over 300 potential buyers and financiers within the industry.

Not only is Corus Entertainment offering a development deal, but Toon Boom Animation will award a licence for Harmony and Storyboard Pro, with training to the winner.

Proposals should include:
• Project synopsis, including log line and character descriptions
• One episode synopsis
• Concept art
• Bios of key creators.
• Content aimed at children ages 2—11
• Please note: no more than 2 submissions per production company
• We are accepting International submissions!
