The most anticipated cross-media pitching challenge of the new decade has begun accepting entries for new ideas and techniques to engage audiences across digital platforms.
Finalists including independent producers, interactive agencies and digital designers will be invited to Cannes, France (12-16 April) to pitch ideas LIVE to major international networks, including the BBC, TF1, KCC, NFB, and the European Commission.
This rapid-fire competition sets the creative pulse for the Content 360 Festival, part of MIPTV’s all-new MIPDigital event programme, with FanTrust President Catherine Warren once again serving as a judge for this global media event.
Content360 is also launching a new ‘Next Generation Audience Engagement’ category. Up to 10 new companies or freelance individuals will be chosen to pitch their ideas at MIPTV, based on the originality and potential of their application or content to attract and engage audiences via digital media.
