Pitch Party Voting Underway!

Animation Magazine’s 6th Annual Pitch Party is on and you can now click here: www.animationmagazine.net/pitch_party_07_vote.html to view all of this year’s entries and vote for your favorites. All pitches are presented as 1/6th-page advertisements that offer new ideas for animated shows that that just may get picked up for development. Results of the online reader poll will be announced along with the picks of our distinguished panel of industry judges and AniMag staffers in the August issue of Animation Magazine.

The Pitch Party offers independent artists an opportunity to advertise their animated properties for a greatly reduced rate in the pages of Animation Magazine, which is read all over the world. Each of our esteemed judges then review all entries and collectively select one winner for the opportunity to pitch their idea to the participating execs of their choice.

This year’s official judges include Maxwell Atoms, creator of Cartoon Network’s The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy; Nick Weidenfeld, manager of program development for [adult swim]; Betsy McGowen, senior VP/GM of Kids’ WB! on the CW; Eric Radomski, producer of Warner Bros. Animation’s Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!; Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, founder/CEO of The Gotham Group; Eric Coleman, VP/executive producer of animation development and production for Nickelodeon; Catherine Wai, director of creative affairs for Jetix Europe; and Joy Tashjian, president of JTMG, LLC.
