30 projects in total will be selected. The criteria are simple:

  • Projects must be at an advanced stage of development
  • Projects can be any genre, including hybrid
  • Stories must use more than one platform – any platform – to engage audiences

Eight of the 30 teams will be chosen as finalists to present their project at The Pixel Pitch competition (16 Oct) in front of a public audience (watch this space for ticket availability). A panel of international experts (see last year’s here) will choose the winner of ARTE‘s 6,000 € International Prize for The Pixel Pitch!

All teams take part in The Pixel Market meetings (17 Oct), a day of bespoke 1-2-1 business meetings with 100+ financiers.  But that’s not all – other prizes for 2013 include:

  • beActive‘s Pixel Market Prize for Scripted Content (Fiction)
