Cakebread Photo Contest

Do you have a favorite snapshot of Cakebread Cellars wines? Whether it’s exotic, eccentric or just great fun, submit it for our Annual Photo Contest.

Call for Entries

You’re invited to enter our 31st Annual Cakebread Cellars Photo Contest. The tradition began when we started to get postcards and snapshots from our customers telling us when and where 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.
