Lights! Camera! Pour! Video Contest! Wine Spectator's 8th Annual Contest

Share your wine story and earn great prizes
Apr 30, 2014

Submit your video to Wine Spectator's Eighth Annual Video Contest. Make it short, educational and entertaining. Storytelling is in; straight-on commercials are out.

Everyone can enter—whether you're a wine lover, wine region rep or a winery, retailer or sommelier, rapper, lawyer, chef or videographer—as long as you are at least 21 years old.

Become a star! Your video will have a big, big audience on WineSpectator.com if it is selected as a finalist by our editors. The public picks the winner.

Great prizes for all qualified entrants and finalists.

  • Grand Prize The creator of the winning video will receive a pair of full event passes to the Wine Spectator Wine Experience where the winning video will be screened.

  • Finalist Prize The finalists will each receive a pair of tickets to one of the Grand Tastings at the Wine Experience in New York City on October 16 or 17, 2014. If they are unable to make that date, finalists may attend any one of the 2015 Grand Tour Tastings (dates and locations TBD).

For examples and inspiration, check out last year's finalists. The winning video, "The Dawn of Wine," continues the humorous, storytelling approach to wine that has attracted the popular vote. Read the story behind this video.
