These are the rules for this category:
- 3-5 photos, linked by a common story in the eyes and mind of the photographer
- Exploring any aspect of wine – production, consumption, culture or business
- Value will be given to the artistic value and engaging story linking the images rather than solely on the quality of the image
This is the second year for BDWA.
Storytelling with wine – and sharing the moment
There’s a common phrase that says ”a picture can tell a thousand words”. We all know that to be true, but those thousand words would easily be based on the combination of what you see and what you already know.
But just as important it is to share the exact opposit. A thousand words from a knowledged wine person can paint a whole new and different picture within your own mind – and by doing so quite possibly transfer some fragments of the magic, which in turn will enrich your own storytelling.
But there is more to it. For a wine lover the moment when sharing a bottle of wine is in itself a golden opportunity to exchange stories, memories, expectations and true feelings – whether they are happy or sad. And a great will wine possibly get even greater when enjoyed in company.
Sharing is believing. But without the sharing there would not be that many believing and happy wine persons around. Wine is definitely a social product – that we all know. And by sharing it – in any aspect of the word, we also make sure our verdict will be heard.
So, each time you drink a new wine; make sure you keep on telling what you think of it. Take pictures, write or blog, tell others – because that is really the only way to make sure that the wine world eventually get your opinion.
