Pitch Party 2008 Polling Now Closed!
Thank you so much for participating in our 7th Annual Pitch Party. We were thrilled to receive over 10,000 votes from all of you, enthusiastic animation supporters. We will announce the winners of this year's online contest on Friday, June 27. Keep checking this website for all the results and pick up the August issue of the magazine to see which toon pitches made the cut with our distinguished panel of judges. The magazine will also have a bonus distribution at this year's San Diego event.

All pitches are presented as 1/6th-page advertisements that offer new ideas for animated shows that just may get picked up for development.

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.

Here is this year’s awesome judge lineup:
Karen Toliver, VP of production, 20th Century Fox Animation
David Wiebe, director of Content at YTV, Corus Entertainment
Alex Schwartz, Damon Ross and Chris Kuser, DreamWorks Animation Development Team
Daniel Wineman, director of original series and co-productions, Jetix Europe
Julie Kane-Ritsch, exec VP, The Gotham Group
Roland Poindexter, VP of current series animation, Nickelodeon
Rob Renzetti, supervising producer, Cartoon Network’s Cartoonstitute
Matt Harrigan, head of program development, Adult Swim
