Get set to bring out the wine writer in you. Champagne Louis Roederer invites participation by wine writers from around the world in the 10th Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards 2014. Wishing to concentrate more on the art of writing, the organisers have made some changes in the categories this year.
The Online Columnist and Blogger categories have been clubbed together under Online Communicator. Short Copy Columnist is a new category and, most significantly, in order to focus on writing quality the Website category has been dropped, notes Marinel FitzSimons, Champagne Louis Roederer Brand Manager and LRIWWA Organiser.
Apart from the prestige that winning a Roederer can bring, there is a generous financial prize and Cristal for each category – in 2013 it was £1500 and a magnum of stunning Cristal 2004. Select categories are sponsored by different producers represented by Louis Roederer in the UK. They will also donate a special prize in their respective categories.
The categories and their sponsors are
Artistry of Wine – LOUIS ROEDERER
International Emerging Wine Writer – DOMAINES SCHLUMBERGER
International Wine Book – DOMAINE FAIVELEY
International Online Communicator – RAMOS PINTO
International Wine Columnist – CASTIGLION DEL BOSCO
International Feature Writer – DOMAINES OTT
International Short Copy Columnist – LOUIS ROEDERER
“The Roederers are truly international,” FitzSimons pointed out. “We would like to think that the global reach of the competition will be further extended this year.”
Last year over a third of the entries were from countries outside the UK. For more details, log onto: www.theroedererawards.com
