Pitching Opportunities
TAC offers two specialized programs dedicated to pitching: Pitch THIS! and Fast Track

Do you have a great idea for an animated series for kids?  

Pitch THIS! is TAC's signature opportunity to show off your new project! TEN pitches will be selected and the creators paired with an industry mentor who will help them develop their idea.  

All ten pitches will be presented on Wednesday September 26th for final selection during TAC, where two lucky finalists will be selected to take the stage and compete for the coveted grand prize at the official Pitch THIS! event on Thursday, September 27th. The finalists will be pitching to a panel of broadcasters and the entire TAC audience, which includes over 300 potential buyers and financiers
within the industry. 

Now a competition, the winner will be awarded an invaluable grand prize including: 
Cash Prize
Toon Boom Animation Software licenses for Harmony and Storybook Pro, plus training! 
Entertainment Legal Services from Edwards PC, Creative Law



Speed pitching sessions for animation content creators.  

If you plan to pitch a project, find the perfect production company for your ideas, and establish important relations, Fast Track will get you there. Fast Track gives you one shot to meet with each of your targets in 12-minute long “speed pitching” meetings. 

Fast Track’s line-up consists of producers, broadcasters, and distributors from around the globe! These executives come from a wide range of production interests and expectations and will be looking for features, shorts, and TV series. Target audiences range from preschool to adult content; gender specific/gender neutral needs; and styles ranging from visually driven to dialogue driven.   

Fast Track is exclusively for fully registered TAC passholders.

New in 2018, TAC passholders must complete this brief pre-screening questionnaire that will be used to determine eligibility for Fast Track. Once you’ve demonstrated that you have a project to pitch, you will be given access to Fast Track registration, which will begin at 12:00PM EST, on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 05/18. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so register for TAC soon! 

Before registration opens, please be sure to carefully read each VIP’s profile/questionnaire responses explaining what they are looking for. For example, if you are pitching a show geared toward a mature demographic, a broadcaster seeking preschool content will not be appropriate for you. Choosing carefully in advance, and being selective about who you pitch to, ensures that your meetings will be productive and as successful as possible. 

TAC passholders will receive a reminder e-mail a few days before the registration launch, so add This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it to your contacts list to ensure you receive it. 

Good luck, and happy pitching!
