NOTE

  • Should you be selected to pitch/showcase you will need to pay a pitch/showcase fee as well as register as a Delegate and pay the associated Delegate fee, in order to attend the Arts Market.
  • Delegate registrations will open week of 9 October.

First Time Pitching?

We offer all successful applicants, the opportunity to attend a 'Pitching Workshop' (for a small fee).
This ensures that you are able to present your show in the best way to presenters and buyers.
We highly recommend you do the pitching workshop, even if you have pitched before - you will receive invaluable feedback.

If you would like to know more about being a first time attendee, please contact Celia Walmsley (celia@pannz.org.nz).

 

TOP TIP 1: Prepare your application carefully and get it in promptly.

TOP TIP 2: Organising endorsement is a big part of the artist’s/producer’s pitch preparation.  Endorsers should be ambassadors who can speak enthusiastically and eloquently to their colleagues about your work.

 

This year we are going digital!   All information will be online, including the programme (no booklet in 2018).

 

PANNZ Chair, James Wilson said that he hopes the Arts Market "raises the cultural capital of Aotearoa" as it aims to "nurture, develop and support new voices and new ideas, and create opportunities for those voices to reach audiences right across the country."

 Categories and Criteria:

  • Breakfast of Bright Ideas:

8 mins to pitch ideas-in-development that are not yet ready to tour.  This idea has not been ‘pitched’ at Arts Market before. 

Example: You have the gem of an idea and are looking for collaborators/investors. Or you have a fully formed idea and you will be developing a show soon, and are looking for presentation opportunities.

These are new ideas, and are not an existing production which has already had a public showing.

  • Pitch:

10 mins to pitch a tour-ready work that has had a premiere or is confirmed for one.  Production has not been pitched at Arts Market before.  (NB: can have presented as an Idea and is now fully developed). 

Pitches must include presenter/industry endorsement. The endorser must have presented the work and/or be knowledgeable about what’s needed for presentation.

Example: You have had a season/public presentation and are looking for further presentation opportunities. You may want to consider applying to Tour-Makers to tour in late 2018/2019 (please make sure you tick the Tour-Makers box in the application).

  • Showcase:

15 mins to pitch and showcase an extract from a work of theatre, dance, comedy, physical theatre etc, that is tour-ready and that has had a premiere.  Production has not been pitched/showcased at Arts Market before (NB: can have presented as an Idea and is now fully developed). Showcase includes live performance excerpt. 

Showcase must also include presenter/industry endorsement. The endorser must have presented the work and/or be knowledgeable about what’s needed for presentation.

There are only a limited number of showcase opportunities available.

Example: A live excerpt is a strong pitch to show Presenters an insight into your show. You will need to work with existing staging and lighting provided and there is no opportunity for set-up or pack in.

  • Music Showcase:

15 mins to pitch and showcase a tour-ready music offering.  Production has not been pitched/showcased at Arts Market before.   (NB: can have presented as an Idea and is now fully developed).  Music showcase must also include presenter/industry endorsement.

The type of music/artist that will most likely be selected to showcase their work, will be the type of show that fits a performing arts venue or festival.

Example: Shows that can be performed in a variety of performance spaces and have the ability to draw  - i.e. from Arts on Tour venues to large venues throughout the country, but not for acts that are looking to perform in the "pub/club circuit".

Should you have any further queries or need clarification on the categories or any questions about the Arts Market, please contact Arts Market Producer: celia@pannz.org.nz

 

  • Tour-Makers EOIs:

We are seeking tour-ready, high quality NZ work to tour in late 2018 and 2019. You must be able to present an accurate budget, an accurate Technical Rider, and a detailed marketing pack and plan, in order to be considered. Work must have premiered and is in high demand from NZ presenters.

Ensure you tick the Tour-Makers box in your application, in order to be considered.
