Kids Publishers Market

A celebration of Australian children’s books – and the talented authors behind them - the market will showcase the hottest properties ripe for adaptation into a television series or film in 2021.

In a break from tradition, producers will find themselves on the receiving end of some fiery pitches, as a series of leading publishers and agents, moderated by Suzanne Ryan (CEO, SLR Productions), take their turns to highlight their current catalogues, give previews of upcoming titles and discuss trends in the publishing world.

Following this pitching market, delegates will then have the opportunity to network with the publishers to express interest, discuss options and exchange details to keep the conversation flowing long after the conference closes.

Bookings are now open for the Kids Publishers Market. To book, please email connect@screenproducers.org.au.
