Chosen by the DLA Selection Committees, the 10 winners of the Pitch Competition will be revealed at NEXT, the innovation hub of the Cannes Film Festival Market, on Thursday, May 10, at 4 pm, during a facebook live session in the presence of some of the DLA partners.

The project which will gather the most votes on the platform will be awarded with a special prize (DLA Audience Award) including invitation (for 1 person) to one of the DLA Industry Events in France or in Sub-Saharan African region (fligh ticket, accommodation & accreditation covered by DLA).

The 10 winners will get a 3 000 euros cash prize and a tailored-made incubation programme to accelerate their project development with 2 mentors, from French & Sub-Saharan creative industries ecosystem (producers, distributors, broadcasters, experts, artists...), a residence period in France within a digital cluster/hub, and participation in industry events in France and/or in Sub-Saharan African region.
