American Public Television (APT), the leading syndicator to U.S. public television stations, will soon launch APT PitchFest 2019, an initiative designed to find strong, innovative new content for public television viewers. APT will award a Grand Prize in production funds for this year's APT PitchFest. Recognizing the importance of quality fundraising content, APT PitchFest 2019 will seek entries for promising pledge programs for public television. Submission materials will be updated later this summer.
Finalists will vie for the Grand Prize at APT PitchFest Live! during APT’s Fall Marketplace in Scottsdale, AZ, on November 11–14, 2019. Fall Marketplace is the annual conference which showcases up to 100 new content offers to the public television stations.
APT will be looking for outstanding pledge proposals, pilots, or programs in production needing finishing funds or co-production money.
APT will announce the submission period later this summer and entrants are encouraged to submit at any time during this period.
