Ready for The Pixel Market 2013? We’re open for applications!

Fancy winning 6,000 € courtesy of ARTE? How about a spell in Amsterdam this October, attending Cinekid for Professionals? Not your jam? Well, maybe £2,500 from beActive will whet your appetite?

Yes, The Pixel Market is back again this October, at the heart of The Cross-Media Forum. But it’s not all about prizes, it’s about serious business too. As the biggest finance market dedicated to getting cross-media projects off the ground, this is the ultimate event if you’re looking to launch a project and/or scout new talent.

We will select 30 projects, with 8 teams going through to The Pixel Pitch competition (16 Oct), in an attempt to win ARTE’s 6,000 € International Prize for The Pixel Pitch. The winner will be chosen by an international panel of cross-media masterminds, who will deliberate in front of a 400+ strong public audience, so you’re sure to have your project noticed!

But it doesn’t stop there! The Pixel Market meetings (17 Oct), encompass 360+ tailored meetings for all 30 teams. This is your chance to present your project to 100+ media companies and entrepreneurs who are eager to finance cross-media projects and form new inter-industry partnerships.

There are also numerous networking lunches, dinners and drinks. To wrap it all up, each participant is invited to our awards reception where the winners of the ARTE International Prize for The Pixel Pitch;  beActive Pixel Market Prize for Best Scripted Content and the Cinekid Pixel Market for Best Children’s Project will be announced!

Applications close FRIDAY 26 JULY, 18.00 BST!
