Pitch a Programme 2023 - Judges Brief from 4Schools on Vimeo.
The Pitch a Programme Competition is designed to get you thinking outside the box and come up with a programme idea that highlights what life is like in modern Britain and explores how we are “All Together Different”. for the competition, you'll pitch your 30-second teaser trailer to persuade the Channel 4 commissioners that your idea is the best.
This year’s competition will be judged by two industry experts from Channel 4; Catriona, a digital commissioning exec who was previously making original content at LADBible, including MINUTES WITH and celebrity junkets and Evie a Digital Commissioning Editor who commissions ideas across all of Channel 4’s digital platforms. This includes YouTube, Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram and Facebook.
"Last year we were blown away by the quality of thinking and presentation displayed by all of the young people who participated. This year, I am thrilled to be joining the judging panel for the 2023 Pitch a Programme competition. I'm excited to see what this year's creative minds and talent have to offer." – Evie – 4Schools Competition Judge
“Students are exactly the audience we are always trying to reach, so I'm really looking forward to getting to judge all of their great new ideas!” - Catriona – 4Schools Competition JudgePitch your Programme
