>1 Do we need to put our names down in advance?
If so, how and when do we do that?

Yes but you only need to do it minutes before it starts

>2. How much time do we get?

A few minutes? Three is it?

>3. Are they looking for a quick idea or a fully-developed tale with samples of dialogue and
everything?

Enought to get your idea over in the time... a precis of the plot with an outline of the characters. The old advice is imagine telling your mate in the pub about a film you saw last night. And include the ending.

>5. Are there any restrictions? I.e., Future Shocks only, no Dredd, etc.

Future Shocks, Terror Tales, Past Imperfects etc... NO DREDD!

>6. Would it help if I brought along some sort of monetary or confectionary bribe?

Only if you give it to me

>I believe it works along the same lines as The Gong Show mike

Stop spreading baseless rumours!

ALso, and this is the most important thing, commit it to memory! If you take a notes with you make sure they're for bullet-point reminders, don't write down the whole thing and read from it - nothing looses the audiences interest faster than someone mumbling into a sheet of paper.

1. Do we need to put our names down in advance? If so, how and when do we do that? (I can't imagine that it's just some sort of frenzied free-for-all!)
All through the day they ask for names, which are called out at random during pichfest.

2. How much time do we get?
Somewhere between 5 and 10 mins

3. Are they looking for a quick idea or a fully-developed tale with samples of dialogue and everything?
They want a summary of the tale, with examples of dialogue and any punchline, etc, will help.  Also something like descriptions of places and characters will be a bonus and most of all have fun and be confident.


4. If my pitch isn't impressing the panel, can they stop me before I'm finished?
They might, no ones been kicked off as such

5. Are there any restrictions? I.e., Future Shocks only, no Dredd, etc.
they prefer the shorter stuff.  Future shocks, past imperfects, etc.  Ive seen Dredd stuff pitched but theyve not really gotten far

6. Would it help if I brought along some sort of monetary or confectionary bribe?

Yes but only if you buy drinks!! :)

Well, a Dredd pitch won last year. But since it wasn;t what they were looking for it didn't get published, which is rather the point of entering pitchfest.

Slippery PD:
yeah forgot about that and the time was so short.

Getting too old
