There’s been a lot of changes happening behind the scenes of Pitch Wars. As we strive to make our mentoring program more inclusive, we’ve cut back a little to also make it more manageable. We received so many applications from talented industry professionals that it was a difficult task to pick our mentoring team. Our committee has worked hard to choose a team they feel represents our community and offers an acceptable range of genres in each of the categories we accept for the program. We were so sad that we couldn’t take every applicant, but we hope they will understand and apply again next year (pretty please). After each Pitch Wars event, our committee will evaluate our program and make changes as they feel are needed.
