If you’re a producer with a hot project in development, you have until January 4 to submit it for consideration for the Realscreen Summit’s standing-room-only pitching competition, So You Think You Can Pitch?

Presented in association with CABLEready, the session features pitching hopefuls who have made it through a rigorous adjudication round competing to impress a host of distinguished judges in this interactive session. Prizes include a pass to the 2014 Realscreen Summit and a one-year subscription to CableU.

This year’s judges are Nancy Daniels, EVP of production and development for Discovery Channel; Tim Duffy, SVP of original series development at Spike TV; Rob Sharenow, EVP of programming at Lifetime Networks; and Andy Singer, GM at Travel Channel.

Series and one-off projects are eligible for consideration. Past winners of the competition include Jason Osder’s Let the Fire Burn, which later received a Sundance Documentary Film Program grant and was part of last year’s Hot Docs Forum, while other projects pitched in recent years include Lunchbox Communications’ Digital Dharma, which recently screened during DocuWeeks in New York City.

To submit your project for consideration, please click here. Good luck!
