Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival

I can speak from personal experience, Black Hills Estate Winery knows how to throw a party! As a wine tourist myself, I like to seek-out fun wine related events to attend and any affair organized by Black Hills' president Glenn Fawcett is sure to be a blast. The Celebrity Wine Festival is just such an event and affords one the luxury of taking the experience of attending to the next level - you can actually be in the event by creating a short video about your love for BC wine. Submissions are due June 1st.

Official Call for Submission note from Glenn Fawcett:
The Vino’s is the world’s first wine film festival. It has been inspired by events like the Sundance Film Festival, Cannes, or the wildly successful Big Rock Eddies beer commercial film festival. It gives wine enthusiasts the opportunity to compete for cash prizes and precious wine packages by producing a one to three minute video about their favourite BC winery or anything to do with BC wine.

You obviously like drinking B.C. wine. So why not grab your friends and a camcorder and make a 60 second video commercial about your favourite B.C. wine or winery? Have some fun, create some laughs and send something in. If you are lucky, your submission will be chosen as one of the 24 finalists and will be shown during the Vino’s party on June 11. Then you can act like a star and rub shoulders with celebrities & producers. If your video is really good (funny), you could win one of the prizes:

· First Place: $1500 cash plus 3 cases of B.C, wine
· Second Place: $750 plus 2 cases of B.C. wine
· Third Place: $250 cash plus 1 case of B.C. wine

All 24 finalists will receive 2 free tickets to the Vino’s party plus one night free hotel accommodation in Osoyoos during the festival. So spread the word to your friends who may want to do a submission as well. For further details please go to:
