Shortlist for the 2012 Born Digital Wine Awards Announced!

The Shortlist for the 2012 Born Digital Wine Awards has been announced! The competition was hard fought – with over 300 submissions from 24 countries, including: Australia, Belgium, China, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Turkey – and the judges completed the complex task of narrowing down the large number of entries to a concise and deserving list of “Top 5” for each category.

The BDWA organizing committee thoroughly appreciates everyone who took part, both as candidates and judges, and entered such great material, putting new content and judging system though its paces. The winners will be announced at the London International Wine Fair, on the Access Zone, on May 23rd 2012 at 16:30 (London Time). As the Access Zone will be streamed live, you can join us at:
