Attendee tips

"Kidscreen is a great place to take projects in development as compared to MIP Junior and MIPCOM, where projects looking for production financing and distribution are better suited."

"Kidscreen is a terrific market for meetings in a casual setting. It was easy to get around, there was a good cross-section of producers, broadcasters and even a handful of book publishers and game developers."

"Kidscreen produces a global pitch guidebook, published online, which was very useful as it provided a snapshot of broadcaster needs."

"My impression this year is that broadcasters want brands, they want 2–3 seasons from a product and thus it needs to have legs. Many broadcasters don’t want to commit until the 'package' is in place."

"Any producer interested in makings kids product should attend this market. It provides a brutal reminder of the competition in the market, the market positioning of leading brands – Nick, Disney, Hasbro, Nat Geo, BBC Worldwide, as well as the interrelationship of merchandising the product and the programming."

"The key emerging trend at Kidscreen 2010 was the role of the Transmedia Producer."

"The practice of encouraging first time participants to attend with a mentor is a good thing."
