Lights! Camera! Pour! Video Contest! Wine Spectator's 3rd Annual Contest

Share your wine adventures and earn great prizes

Posted: May 21, 2009

If you love wine and are creative with a video camera, we invite you to submit your wine video to Wine Spectator's Third Annual Video Contest.

We are looking for short, original videos that are educational and entertaining. Subjects may include interviews with winemakers, chefs or sommeliers, tours of wineries, tastings, wine and food pairings or simply your wine adventures. For examples and inspiration, watch last year's finalists and the other free videos at WineSpectator.com/video.

How is the winner picked? Wine Spectator's editors will select the finalists' videos and post them on WineSpectator.com. Visitors to the site can view them and vote for their favorite.

Here are the key contest dates for 2009 ...

  • Submission deadline: Monday, August 31
  • Finalists revealed and voting begins: Monday, September 14
  • Voting closes and Runners-Up announced: Monday, September 21
  • Winner announced and Honorable Mentions go live: Tuesday, September 22

Everyone who enters gets a prize! Plus, there will be big prizes for the finalists and the winner!

Videos must be less than three minutes long and cannot contain any copyrighted or defamatory material. View the complete contest rules, prize and submission information. If you have questions, contact us at video@winespectator.com.

Last year's winning video, "Wine and the City," followed two single wine lovers as they searched for the perfect bottle (or were they searching for the perfect guy?). Remember to submit your wine video by August 31.

Submit your video here!
