Ready, Steady, Pitch!

ABCME is always on the lookout for new, memorable, innovative and distinctive ideas across all genres. The starting point should be a clear Australian audience connection and we would encourage content makers to think about their idea working for linear and digital together. We want to broadcast Australian stories about Australian kids – focusing on their lives, perspectives, and the stories that help kids make sense of who they are and where they are from

ABC KIDS offers a mixed genre output presenting entertainment, light drama, comedy and factual content. Content that is specifically produced for younger audiences, at a pace and in a style that suits them and using a range of techniques including live-action and animation.
