Atresmedia is following the advice of the National Academy of Television to support the nations industry and look for young, talented audiovisual creators, by launching a competition for new talent and offering broadcasting space for them through its seven free-to-air channels.

Atresmedia intends to invest in Spain's audiovisual industry, increasing opportunities for a new generation and producing profitable productions.

The group's digital platforms will have a special space for the competitors. Submitted content will be hosted on the Antena3 and laSexta websites and may also be broadcast on Antena 3, laSexta, Neox, Nova, Nitro, laSexta3 and Xplora, all free-to-air DTT channels.

Atresmedia will be gathering projects until 31 January 2014. From 7 February until 7 March, those of a high enough quality will be published online and voted for by Internet users. Out of the ten most voted, a panel of judges will pick three, which will be broadcast in full on the group's channels.

People under 35 can present their projects directly onto an Atresmedia site created for the competition. The pieces must be a maximum of 30 minutes and there is no specification of topic or genre.
