Call for Entries

This is an invitation to enter our 28th Annual Cakebread Cellars Photo Contest. The tradition began when we started to get postcards and snapshots from our customers telling us when they were enjoying our wine. Some are exotic, some are eccentric, some are close to home, some from far away, but all are great fun.

Criteria of Judges

We will be looking for the best picture/story combination (the quality of the picture counts a lot).

Helpful Suggestions from the Judges

  • Make sure the label is clearly visible.
  • The label photographs better on a cloudy day or in the shade.
  • The label's white color causes it to reflect, it can be challenging.
  • Exotic locations aren't always the best.

**Send in your photograph and story showing you either wearing a Cakebread Cellars T-shirt, hat or enjoying a bottle of Cakebread Cellars wine. The story text should not be more than 25 words, the more exotic and creative the better. All subjects and participants MUST be 21 or over.
