From Cannes, Power to the Pixel announces four prizes for this October’s Pixel Market

The Pixel Market is a finance market like no other, bringing top executives from the worlds of film, TV, publishing, online, interactive, games and mobile together under one roof over two days. Taking place on 17 & 18 October at the heart of Power to the Pixel’s sixth annual Cross-Media Forum in London (16-19 October), this year’s market promises to be the best yet.

We’re delighted to announce ARTE’s sponsorship of the £6,000 Pixel Pitch prize for a third consecutive year. And also three new prizes in the following categories:

For comedy, the beActive Pixel Market Prize where one lucky winner will receive £2,500 and automatic selection for the Digital Comedy Lab 2013.

For children’s projects (4-14 year olds), the Cinekid Pixel Market Prize. The winner gains automatic selection to the 2012 Cinekid for Professionals co-production market in October, plus return travel and two nights accommodation in Amsterdam.

And finally, for non-fiction projects, the Mozilla Pixel Market Prize. Mozilla will fly the winner out to San Francisco to participate at the Living Docs hackathon in September, with accommodation also included in the prize.

Only projects selected for The Pixel Market will be eligible for these prizes. Please download an application form for full details on how to apply including eligibility criteria or contact us at with any queries.
