Quebec-based media company Quebecor and innovation conference C2 Montreal are teaming to present P.I.T.C.H., a formats competition that offers a first prize of a CDN$25,000 development grant.

The competition is open to content creators that are 18 years of age or older as well as Canadian residents living in Quebec. The second prize, from Armoza Formats, will give the winner the opportunity to attend MIPFormats in Cannes in 2016, while the third prize will be a four-week development course with Quebecor Media Inc.’s content creation team.

Interested parties must submit an outline for an unscripted TV format by April 15, 2015. From there, proposals will be evaluated under the supervision of Quebecor, and selected finalists will then have four weeks to work on their presentations, which will be presented to a panel of five judges from the international audiovisual industry during the upcoming edition of the C2 Montreal conference, taking place from May 26-28.
