Don’t miss the opportunity – go to http://www.filmsarasota.com/tv-me-contest/ and check it out, ASAP! Best of luck – and share this with your friends, family, co-workers, etc. who might have just the new idea Hollywood is looking for!
One grand prize winner is chosen for the best entry across all categories, who receives all of the prizes won by the three category first place winners, plus the grand prize of an escorted trip to Los Angeles California or New York City to “pitch” in person to a select group of industry professionals! There are 12 chances to win! Winners are invited to be present at a press conference announcing their achievements followed by an awards luncheon.
Hurry! The deadline for entries is November 30th 2012!
Unlike ordinary competitions that require submission of full-length screenplays for movies, scripts for television, or manuscripts for novels -- which can range from 90 pages to 350 pages -- the TV ME! Contest requires only five-to-15-page pitches of a concept for television programming.
Individuals and creative teams can compete for awards and prizes in three different categories:
• scripted series (from comedy to drama, animated to children’s programs, science fiction to hybrids and other genres of recurring and/or series television);
• unscripted/partially scripted (reality programs, game shows, demonstration/training programs such as cooking, crafts, skills, documentary, interview and expose programs, etc.); and
• one-offs (single standalone programs such as a mini-series , a movie-of-the-week, an award or sporting event, a special televised gala, benefit, tribute, fundraiser, concert, staged performance, etc.).
Did you know you can re-submit your non-winning pitch concepts from last year? With the exception of the past winning entries, you can tweak, expand your previous entry and re-enter! Review the judge’s notes you were provided from last year’s contest and try again!
TVMe! is one of the few contests that provide you judges notes and comments on your work!
Enter Soon! The deadline for entries is November 30th 2012!
TVMe! Pitch / Concept Contest is sponsored by The Sarasota County
