FANCY yourself the next Nick Ryan or Katie Spain? Budding wine writers aged between 25 – 40 can now apply for the 2021 wine Communicators of Australia (WCA) wine media cadetship.
The six-month program allows the cadet to participate in a range of practical experiences including the one-day intensive Advanced Wine Assessment program, domestic wine events, media placement and mentorship within the wine industry.
Wine Communicators Australia Executive Officer Andrew Stark said the program aims to support excellence in wine communications.
“Like everything during the pandemic, this year’s program will be slightly different to previous years with the wine media cadet unable to travel internationally, however they will continue to undertake exceptional wine experiences,” Mr Stark said.
Primary Industries and Regional Development Minister David Basham encouraged those interested in South Australia’s $2.3 billion wine industry to apply.
“The Wine Media Cadet program provides a remarkable opportunity for a wine industry professional to take the next step in their desired communication career and tell some of South Australia’s interesting stories,” Minister Basham said.
