UNSOLICITED CREATIVE SUBMISSIONS/ COMMUNICATIONS
MTAV does not accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions or materials other than those MTAV has specifically requested. This is to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects independently developed by MTAV or its agents might seem to others to be similar to their own creative ideas, suggestions or materials. MTAV's practice is that creative ideas, suggestions or materials are only accepted for consideration when requested by MTAV, and submitted by a franchised literary agent or production executive with whom MTAV has established a working relationship, and from whom MTAV has received an executed submission agreement. MTAV’s policy is to delete or discard any such unsolicited submissions/communications without reading, forwarding or responding to them.
