Announcing Wine Spectator’s 15th Annual Video Contest
Jun 9, 2021

After a year largely spent at home, wine lovers are looking forward to reconnecting in person with friends and family, dining out, traveling to wine country and attending tastings again. How will you be enjoying wine this year? Share your story about your love of wine by submitting your short video to Wine Spectator’s 15th Annual Video Contest. Anyone can enter—whether you’re a wine lover, work in the wine or restaurant industry, or are a student of film, culinary arts or viticulture and enology. (You just need to be 21 or older.)

How to Enter

1. Shoot
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, Aug. 30.
