The 2020 Wine Communicators of Australia (WCA) wine media cadetship, aimed at aspiring journalists with an ambition for specialising in the wine sector, is now open for applications.

The wine media cadetship presents a platform for young wine media to take the next step in their desired communication careers.

The cadetship, now in its fourth year, is run by Wine Communicators of Australia – a national organisation for wine industry professionals. It is sponsored through the Adelaide South Australia, a Great Wine Capital initiative funded by Primary Industries and Regions South Australia (PIRSA), the South Australian Wine Industry Association and the South Australian Tourism Commission, the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia.

The extensive six-month program involves opportunities for the cadet to participate in a range of practical experiences including the one-day intensive Advanced Wine Assessment program, domestic wine events (international events not an option in the 2020 program due to COVID-19), media placement and mentorship within the wine industry and an opportunity to meet key wine influencers through activities within the Great Wine Capitals Global Network program.
