PANNZ ARTS MARKET 2019
The DEADLINE IS LOOMING to apply to pitch at PANNZ Arts Market 2019 (and/or to express interest in touring with Tour-Makers in 2020). Applications must close Monday 17 September.
There are four presentation categories you can apply for, and the right category for pitching your work will depend on whether it is an idea, in development or ready to tour.
A brand new category for work that is tour-ready for international presentation. Full-length performances will be held at the Herald Theatre, shown to an audience of registered delegates – including international presenters.
For work that is in development or ready to tour, a short showcase/excerpt includes live performance (15 mins), a powerpoint or keynote presentation/Q & A session managed by Arts Market MC or session presenter (5 mins).
For work that is in development or ready to tour, a pitch session includes a powerpoint or keynote presentation (10 mins – may include video) and a Q & A facilitated by the Arts Market MC or session presenter (5 mins). No live performance.
ENCOUNTER – WHAT’S NEW?
This category is for work in very early stages that may only be produced if enough tour interest is gained, or support is offered. It includes a powerpoint or key note presentation to the full delegation (10 mins) and a meeting with matched presenters to discuss the work further (30 mins). No live performance.
You’ll find more information on presentation categories and the application process in our application guidelines available to download on our website. You can also email us at any stage if you have questions.
Please note: There is no cost to apply to pitch at the PANNZ Arts Market, there is a fee of $150 + GST (all categories) if your application is successful. If you are prompted to pay for a National Touring Selector (NTS) subscription, make sure you read the guidelines for a code that will allow you to redeem a complimentary membership. It’s on the last page of the application guidelines, step four.
