Announcing Wine Spectator’s 16th Annual Video Contest
Jul 1, 2022

What’s your wine story? Is there a specific bottle that made you fall in love with wine—or even changed your life? A wine trip that you’ll remember forever or that you’ve been dreaming about for years? A special ritual you have for enjoying wine or ways you incorporate it into your everyday life? A particularly funny or touching memory in which wine plays a key role? Share your love of wine by submitting your short video to Wine Spectator’s 16th 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. 29.
