September is California Wine Month–a celebration for wineries and wine lovers that coincides with the excitement of grape harvest season. But you don’t have to visit Napa or Sonoma this month to join the fun. Enter Jordan Winery’s Show Us Your Corks Photo Contest for a chance to win gourmet products and accessories.
Now through September 30, simply take a photo with your camera or smartphone. The only rule is that the photo must have at least one Jordan wine cork. The photo can include corks from other wines, as long as other brand names or trademarks are not visible/recognizable (see Official Rules). Do what you already enjoy doing—uncork a bottle of wine with those you love and have fun—just don’t forget to take a nice photo after you pull that cork.
Photo Contest Entry
To enter the Show Us Your Corks photo contest, follow these steps:
- Take an artistic photo of wine corks with your camera. Use smartphone photography tips to ensure a better photo.
- Upload your photo to the Jordan Facebook page or post it to your Instagram and tag @jordanwinery.
- Include hashtags #showusyourcorks #CaliforniaWineMonth
- Submit your entry by September 30, 2018
There is no limit to the number of wine corks that can be pictured in the photo. Photos may not include identifiable people/faces for privacy and permissions reasons.
No purchase of Jordan wine is required to enter. Up to 12 Jordan wine corks may be requested as art supplies at no cost to entrants by emailing email@example.com. (Please include your full name, shipping address and phone number when requesting corks.).
The deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. PST on September 30, 2018.
