Wines will be judged in four categories: 1) R80 a bottle and under; 2) over R80 a bottle; 3) R500 a bottle and over and 4) labels forming a series – no price constraints. Judging criteria include originality of concept, execution, shelf appeal and effectiveness as a piece of communication. An entry fee depending on category applies.

Wines must be commercially available and the minimum stock requirement is 100 six-bottle cases. Each entry must be accompanied by a 150-word creative rationale.
After official judging, finalists will then be displayed on for a set period to allow for consumer voting to determine a “People’s choice” winner. The award ceremony takes place on 24 February.
