Catalonia’s Designation of Origin (DO Catalunya) celebrates the 6th BlocDOCat Competition in order to recognise and reward private initiatives to promote the values of Catalan wine and wine culture. DO Catalunya has an innovative and creative vision of wine, and under this criteria it wants to recognise the virtual spaces for the discussion, promotion, exchange of opinions, ratings, and tastings of Catalan wines, a tool we believe is crucial and with wide-reaching impact for the promotion of our wine culture, particularly in Catalonia.
The world of communication has experienced massive changes over the past 10 years of the BlocDOCat Competition: new media and channels have emerged while others have become less relevant and/or disappeared. The transmedia concept impacts the majority of professional and private communications, and this competition aims to recognise the promotion of wine culture in all possible channels and formats.
On the other hand, DO Catalunya has had a passion for exporting and internationalisation since its inception. Therefore, the VI edition of this competition will not have categories that depend on the origin/location of the participants. Anyone, from any country, can make a submission to any of the 3 established categories, provided they meet the requirements set forth below.
