Quick Pitch Review Factors

When reviewing the quick pitches, VMC Advisory Committee members consider the potential degree to which: 

  • there is a fit between the subject, story and the target audience(s) 
  • the user experience will engage the audience(s) and promote enjoyment and learning   
  • the digital tools and technologies fit the user experience  
  • the approach is creative and/or original  
  • the right people are on board to make the project a success 

Comments focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the project, in relation to these factors. 

Note: Feedback will be provided to the institutions by telephone between August 122020 at 9 am Eastern Daylight Time and August 252020 at 4 pm Eastern Daylight Time. Written summaries of the feedback, and the committee’s comments are not provided.
