I almost forgot to post about this, but thanks to The Documentary Channel newsletter, I was reminded. “The Paley Center for Media (formerly The Museum of Television & Radio) has announced a call for entries for its celebrated Art of the Documentary Pitch Workshop. In this workshop/competition–now in its fourth year–a panel of television executives and producers discuss the process of developing a documentary and will hear and evaluate pitches from five preselected filmmakers who are hoping to sell either a nonfiction concept or a documentary work-in-progress.  The winner of the pitch competition will receive a $5,000 grant, sponsored by The Documentary Channel, to be used towards the completion of their project.  Entries must be received by September 26th.”

The workshop takes place as part of the PaleyDocFest08, which has a great looking program, including one of the former winners of the pitch contest, Whatever It Takes by Christopher Wong (still from the film, upper right) as a work-in-progress. Good luck!
