2007 Wine Spectator Online Video Contest
Love wine? Enjoy making videos? Then we invite you to submit your wine videos to Wine Spectator's first video contest
Posted: March 8, 2007
What are we looking for?
We are looking for short, non-commercial videos that are educational, entertaining and technically accomplished. The subjects could be interviews with winemakers, chefs or sommeliers, tours of wineries, tastings of selected wines or simply adventures with wine. (For examples and inspiration, see the free videos posted on Wine Spectator Online)
Wine Spectator editors will select the best videos, which will be posted on Wine Spectator Online. Stay tuned for more information.
