Nominations and entries for this year's Wine Communicator of Australia Awards will close next week.

Designed to celebrate those leading the way in communicating the Australia wine story, the awards cover publishing, design and education.

This year will see nine award categories, including the Wine Communicator of the Year, Digital Wine Communicator of the Year and Best Wine Website or Wine App.

WCA Chairman Angus Barnes said: "These awards are open to professionals across Australia. If you're a writer, designer, graphic artist, digital content developer or publisher and you're helping to tell the Australian wine story in an engaging and innovative way we encourage you to enter." 

The judging panel will include last year's Wine Communicator of the Year, wine writer and author Jeni Port, VinTank's Paul Mabray, Vinomofo CEO Andre Eikmeier and Anne Duncan, from the Australian Grape and Wine Authority. The New Wine Writer Award will be judged by Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine editor Judy Sarris, contributing editor Huon Hooke, and WCA Deputy Chair Angie Bradbury.

Information about the awards, eligibility and judging criteria is available on the Wine Communicators of Australia website.
