So you think you can pitch? Well, here’s your chance to prove it.

The Realscreen Summit’s popular pitch competition, “So You Think You Can Pitch,” returns on January 31, 2012, offering brave producers the opportunity to pitch their projects to a panel of discerning industry judges.

The session, always standing room only at the Summit, provides an invaluable experience for participants as well as great entertainment and learning value for producers and broadcasters in attendance.

Thus far, judges confirmed for the competition include Bridget Whalen Hunnicutt, SVP of global development and production for National Geographic Channel, and Gary Lico, president and CEO of CABLEready. More judges are to be announced in the days ahead.
