What is The Pitch?

The Pitch is a nationwide marketing competition for students, designed to recognise and reward the marketing talent of the future. In teams of two or three, you have to tackle a marketing challenge set by this year’s sponsor. Pitch it to real industry leaders and if you impress our panel, you will be in the running for an array of career-accelerating prizes.

This competition is designed for second and third year university students studying a marketing degree or business degree with a marketing module. By entering The Pitch students are not only in the running for some great prizes but it will also provide the opportunity to build professional networks, gain real-life experience and enhance their CV.
