Pitch your idea to format experts and turn your creativity into successful TV content.

MIPFORMATS Pitch is a pitching event for individuals and companies with innovative concepts for new, non-scripted entertainment formats, taking place on Sunday 7 April, during MIPTV.

This competition is open to all creators and producers from around the world (under the banner of a company or otherwise) to present their new and original, non-scripted entertainment formats which have not been yet commissioned or broadcasted on linear television or non-linear platforms and for which the worldwide format rights are still available.

Ralf Rückauer, Vice President Unscripted at ZDF Studios, said: "All popular shows that are known to a large, global audience are based on a simple but clever idea. And that is not easy to come up with. Together with RX France, we are looking forward to finding the next big hit. It will be exciting to discover fresh ideas and to honour the winner at the awards ceremony in Cannes.

Deadline: 26 February 2024
