Creative tension as finalists pitch in for Content 360 awards
Finalists at the Content 360 Interactive Educational Formats for Cross-Media – held at MIPTV in Cannes, France – battled it out in five-minute pitching sessions to jurors Hye Chung Eun, senior researcher at the Korean Broadcast Institute, and Catherine Warren, FanTrust Entertainment Strategies’ founder and president, for the $10,000 development funding prize.
Selected from 56 entries covering 23 countries, the presentations were all cross-media format ideas that combined education and entertainment.
