How did you fall in love with wine? Was there a specific bottle, meal, trip or story around it that changed the way you think and feel about wine? How do you celebrate wine on a regular basis? With an everyday ritual, an annual tasting trip with friends, special moments with family? Do you have core memories in which wine plays a key role? Share how wine fits into your life and why you love it by submitting your short video to Wine Spectator’s 17th Annual Video Contest. Anyone can enter—whether you’re a wine lover, work in the wine or restaurant industries, or are a student of film, culinary arts or viticulture and enology. (You just need to be 21 or older.)
How to Enter
Feel free to use your iPhone, Android, GoPro, DSLR or video camera. You don’t need professional video equipment or a big budget to win.
2. Have Fun!
Don’t be afraid to get creative and enjoy the process—it’ll show in your video! We’re looking for great storytelling and a passion for wine as much as production value.
3. Watch the Time and Dates
Submissions cannot exceed 2 minutes in length. Get all the rules and submit your short video to us online by Monday, Sept. 4.
