The 2019 ATX Television Festival Pitch Competition Partnership


ATX Television Festival and The Black List are partnering for a fifth year to help aspiring television writers achieve their goals.

Writers who host their completed television pilots on The Black List will have the chance to opt-in for second round consideration in ATX Television Festival’s annual Pitch Competition. 

To be eligible for consideration, writers must host their original pilots on The Black List website for at least one full week during the period from 11/6/19 to 1/6/20. Based on all data collected about the scripts during their hosting on the site through January 6, 2020, The Black List will identify 10-15 of the strongest scripts (both hour-long and half-hour) to be submitted to "The Pitch Competition."

These finalists will be notified by January 18, 2020, and will automatically be given the option to submit directly to the second round of The Pitch Competition based on their selected script, and an accompanying 90-second video pitch, to be submitted by February 10, 2020.
