If you are passionate about wine and creative with a video camera, we invite you to submit your wine videos to Wine Spectator's second annual video contest.
Last year's winning video, "A Toast to the Little Guys," which was selected as the favorite by visitors to WineSpectator.com, was shown to 1,200 people at the 2007 New York Wine Experience, earning a round of applause for its creators. This year, that applause could be for you.
We are looking for short, original videos that are educational and entertaining. Subjects can include interviews with winemakers, chefs or sommeliers, tours of wineries, tastings of selected wines or simply a wine adventure. (For examples and inspiration, watch last year's contest finalists and the other free videos posted on WineSpectator.com's video channel.)
Videos must be less than three minutes long and cannot contain any copyrighted or defamatory material. They must be submitted before Aug. 18, 2008. Wine Spectator's editors will select the best entries, and we will post the finalists' videos on WineSpectator.com, where visitors can watch them and vote for their favorite. There will be great prizes for the winners!View the complete contest rules, prizes and technical and submission information.
We look forward to seeing what creative wine videos our readers come up with this year. Have fun!
