KUCHING: TVS will once again be providing a platform through Pitch-It 2021 in its bid to encourage local talents to pitch their ideas.
TVS chief executive officer Suhaimi Sulaiman said it is an opportunity for all to develop the creative content industry, create jobs and make the industry a major contributor to the economy.
In saying this, he pointed out that it is time to produce content not just for local consumption, but also for the export market.
“The mere mention of Sarawak will automatically bring to mind its lush rainforests, wildlife, spirit of patriotism and diversity through its multi-ethnic groups.
“What a better way to capture the beauty that is Sarawak if not through entertainment contents such as documentaries, magazines, drama series, telemovies, feature films, game shows and reality shows!
“Moreover, it is encouraged that these contents are produced in local dialects,” he said in a statement on Monday (July 19).
Suhaimi stated that the previous Pitch-It session had overwhelming response which drives TVS to search and discover more local content creators in providing fresh and inspiring contents.
He said applicants are encouraged to send in more than one idea and an online briefing on the application process as well as documentation will be conducted at 3pm on Friday (July 23), interesting participants may register at bit.ly/PitchIt-Briefing to attend.
“Pitch-It was launched on October 10 last year and TVS continues to encourage local talents to pitch their ideas in this year’s session starting on July 12. Interested participants can apply online and get more information on the criteria and submission guidelines at www.tvstv.my/pitchit.
“The deadline is on August 10 this year,” he added.
