An outline of the Pitch & Punt
SBSi and the AFC will finance the development of a documentary series to the value of AUD$20,000, in the SBSi/AFC Pitch and Punt at the 2007 Australian International Documentary Conference. SBSi and the AFC sought proposals for gutsy, innovative and appealing series that creatively reflect the SBS charter and put younger faces on screen. The series should appeal to SBS's 25-50 year old target audience, with a preference to attracting female viewers.

The tone of the work may vary from entertaining programs that make you laugh to more confronting, analytical or essayistic work. The series shall be set in Australia or central characters will be Australian. SBSi encouraged applicants to consider how the proposed series would fit into the current SBS Television schedule and how it could be financed. Applicants were also encouraged to put forward ideas that have organic potential to attract and build online communities.
