29 May - update. The results were announced on 23 May and can be read in full on the Born Digital results page. I was delighted to be 'first runner-up' for my video, the full story of which can be read below.

The shortlist for the 2012 Born Digital Wine Awards was announced this week. Now in its second year, the competition 'rewards great content which is first published on the web and not in print', with categories including Best Editorial Content, Best Wine Photo Story and Best Wine Themed Video.

It is this last category which is of particular interest to me, since I am delighted to have been included on the shortlist! So, with minimal coercion from Mission Control, I was persuaded to draw this fact to your attention.

I made the video last year, and you can see it below. It's a studious, academic 'visual essay' on the wine appellations of the world. With percussion.

The full shortlist is reproduced below, with links to the relevant article in each case. It's a great compliment to be included alongside such high-calibre content, especially since the awards specifically champion online work, which is too often thought inferior to traditional print media.

The very best of luck to all of them!
