Pitch Sessions

A great way for artists to get out in front of the presenters, the Pitch Sessions are a way to show your work to presenters. 

Ontario Contact’s Pitch Sessions are an excellent way to introduce yourself to the presenting delegates. You have five minutes for your ‘elevator speech’. We provide a couple of microphones and no other tech. Please note, that there will be no video available in 2017. You have to get on and off within that 5 minutes. A very popular event, many artists have received work as a result of their pitch. 

Over 25 works will be presented during the two sessions at this year’s Pitch Sessions. The sessions will be held at First Baptist Church, Petrolia. 

  • Pitch Session 1 - Thursday November 9 10:15 to 11:15 am
  • Pitch Session 2 - Friday November 10  10:15 to noon

Information for Artists

As a requirement of participating in a pitch session, the artist must either be registered as an exhibitor to attend the conference or have a representative registered.
Video pitches will not be available this year. 
During registration, you will be asked if you wish a pitch session. The decisions for pitches are then determined with the following priorities in mind:
1) artists who applied to showcase unsuccessfully and are attending full conference
2) artists who applied to showcase unsuccessfully and has an agent attending full conference
3) artists who did not apply to showcase
4) agents without showcasing artists 
5) agents with showcasing artists
