Pitch Us Your Show

Enter your video for a chance to be the next STAR!

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. STAY TUNED FOR INFORMATION ON THE WINNING ENTRY!

How would you like to be the next Food Channel online star? We’re introducing a new show called “Pitch Place.” If you’ve always wanted to produce your own food show, now's the time to do it! Our panel (including our site audience, who will be able to vote on Facebook) will help choose the next show we put on our site. It could be yours!

You can do a cooking demo, a tour of your food haunts, or even a food-related drama or comedy show. Watch our own Christen Nehmer explain more (above).

In short, you create a 2-3 minute video show demonstrating to us what your show concept is. Have fun with it--do your cooking demonstration, or show us your comedy or dramatic skills. We're looking for something entertaining, about food, and different than other things out there. We know you have it in you, because we get letters all the time from people who want to "pitch" us a show idea. Now you can pitch, and have the chance to win a Coby Kyros 10” Android Tablet Computer, retail value at $349.99!

Our Food Channel panel will determine the finalists of all entries submitted on our Facebook page. Then we will make the finalists available for our fans to vote on. That's your chance to win--just get your friends and family to "like" The Food Channel on Facebook, then vote for their selection of the best show. The notebook will be awarded to the show concept that receives the most votes.

Don't be disheartened if you aren't the Fav, though, because our panel reserves the right to put more than one concept on the Food Channel web pages.

So, pull out your camera (be it video camera, Flip, iPhone--any of them can work) and start taping, because all show concepts must be submitted by January 9. Remember the following:

  • Show must be family friendly and food related.
  • Each episode should be 2:00-3:00 minutes in length.
  • Each entry should include a short synopsis of the Show.
  • Must upload Show to either YouTube or Facebook, following their specific uploading rules.
  • Individuals under the age of 18 may not appear in the video. 

It’s that easy. Take your show idea, tape it, and send it in.

For the official rules, see our Facebook page, or email us at pitchplace@foodchannel.com with any questions.
