Wine Label judges announced
Sep 8, 2013 / 7:50 am
Kelowna Museums have announced the judges for this year’s BC Wine Label Awards, the signature event of the BC Wine Museum.
The British Columbia Wine Label Awards will be held in conjunction with the British Columbia Wine Awards on Thursday October 3, from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Laurel Packinghouse in Kelowna.
The British Columbia Wine Label Awards will be handed out for the Best Red Wine Label; Best White Wine Label; Best Dessert Wine Label; Best Sparkling Wine Label; Best Rose Wine Label; and Best of Show Wine Label.
This year’s judges bring diverse knowledge and experience of the wine industry, marketing, branding, and creative visual arts and design to the 2013 BC Wine Labels Awards.
The judges are: Dr. Donna Senese, Associate Professor, Geography, UBC Okanagan; David Hopgood, retired Portfolio Manager, BC Liquor Distribution Branch; Cory Stananaught, sommelier; Nataley Nagy, Executive Director, Kelowna Art Gallery; and Tim Turta, “wearer of many hats” in the Okanagan Wine Industry.
Entries are judged on individual merit as well as competitively in comparison to other entries in that category.
Judges will base their decisions on originality, design, colour, and text of the label on the bottle or package.
In all categories, the judges will look for visually distinct label designs that best reflect the character of the category of wines. Specifically, they will look to the success to which the winery has connected the overall look of the label and its internal design elements with both the bottle shape/size and the traditional image of the specific wine type.
The British Columbia Wine Awards entries will all be done online. When you enter your wine label and pay for the entry fee, you will submit a high resolution art image of your wine label online to allow us to use this file to circulate to all judges.
