Nickelodeon Australia has increased the bounty for its Land a Pilot initiative to US$25,000, the sum to be awarded to the most promising pilot pitched at the SPAA Conference taking place on in the country’s Gold Coast in November.
The selected finalists will pitch their projects at the conference on November 13 with the winner announced later that day at the Sheraton Mirage Resort on the Gold Coast.
Last year’s Pilot winner Monkeystack is currently commencing production on its animated pilot Bridget the Goddess, along with help from Nick Oz’s creative team.
Nick Australia is currently looking for a series concept that targets preteens 10 to 12 years old, and is open to live-action, comedy, drama, reality or game show submissions.
The application deadline is Friday, October 24.
