Eligibility Criteria for Open Fellowships
Applicants for open fellowships through the writing competition must postmark their applications no later than November 1, 2014, for the 2015 symposium. Like all other symposium attendees, applicants are limited to professional editorial-oriented writers on wine, wine and food, and wine and travel who can demonstrate at least two paid, published byline articles on these subjects in the 12 months prior to applying.
To maintain the intimate peer-group environment of the symposium, winery owners, professional winemakers, winery employees, winery communications, sales and marketing people, and full-time wine trade professionals are not eligible to attend.
All open fellowships for 2015 will be awarded to writers who have either never received a fellowship to the event, or who have not won a fellowship since at least 2011. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2014.
