retweet to win contestPR NewsChannel (, the global newswire created by journalists,  announced today that Wide River Winery (@WideRiverWinery) is the first winner in their new ‘Retweet to Win’ Twitter contest.

Family owned, Wide River Winery is a small, award winning winery located in Clinton, Iowa.

“We are growing at a rapid pace, but we haven’t had much of a PR or marketing mindset,” said Alisha Epsey, who does PR for Wide River Winery. “PR NewsChannel is giving us a rare opportunity to gain great exposure for our winery.”

The second winner: Jeannine Mallory of Mallory Editing (@MalloryEditing).

On Monday, May 13th at 9 a.m. ET, PR NewsChannel began to “tweet” out designated messages for the week. The newswire will give away one prize each week valued at least $149 to one lucky follower.

To enter the contest each week, Twitter users must “retweet” the designated PR NewsChannel Twitter message for the week. Each “retweet” counts as one entry, and multiple entries are accepted and encouraged.

Winners are selected randomly every Friday at 4:30 p.m. ET during the six week period and are notified via Twitter what prize they have won. Winners will then have one week, or until the following Friday at 4:30 pm ET, to acknowledge their win or the prize will be forfeited.

The contest will run through Friday, June 21, 2013.

The newswire presents workshops nationwide offering hands on PR training on how to create and distribute social media press releases and other course.

Earlier this year, the global press release newswire launched PRNC TV, a first-of-its-kind online, on-demand video channel that targets PR and business executives. The channel calls itself  “The newsroom for everything PR.”
