    The New York Television Festival (NYTVF) is proud to announce that it
    is now accepting submissions to the fourth annual Independent Pilot
    Competition (IPC). The NYTVF, held each fall in Midtown Manhattan, is
    the first-ever independent television showcase, giving independent
    television producers and creators the opportunity to present their
    work directly to executives at broadcast networks, cable networks, and
    online content providers. The 2008 NYTVF will be held in September, on
    dates to be announced soon.

    Starting this year, the IPC will accept pilot entries between 5
    minutes and 22 minutes in length for consideration to the IPC. The
    NYTVF recognizes that television is evolving into new and emerging
    platforms, and the opportunities for our artists to create television
    content for new media outlets have never been greater. We feel it is a
    service to our pilot-makers to give them the flexibility to create
    pilots tailored to these platforms while still allowing them to
    present ideas for more conventional television developers.

    Official Selections to the 2007 Independent Pilot Competition were
    screened directly for development execs, agents, and producers
    throughout the TV industry. Additionally, all pilots were broadcast
    online on MSN Video for viewers all over the country to enjoy,
    maximizing the exposure our artists received for their work. Our top
    entrants have the opportunity to work with some of the biggest
    producers in TV, such as Tom Fontana, Michael Davies, Mitchell
    Hurwitz, and Phil Rosenthal. They also have a chance to win cash
    prizes, development deals, and recognition unmatched anywhere else.

    The NYTVF accepts pilots of all categories and genres, both scripted
    and unscripted. For more information, please visit www.nytvf.com or
