DW2013 'Live the dream' video project

Your creativity, big dreams and sense of adventure is what drives the Awards each and every day. For every DW2013 event Awards Victoria visits, we’re capturing each moment on camera to create the DW2013 ‘Live the Dream’ video project. The completed project will launch across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and the website – stay tuned!

DW2013 Feature Participants

Nothing inspires us more than your stories. You show us your grit and determination, your humour and your candour, your cray cray and your lightbulb moments.

The Feature Participants’ stories will go live on Facebook and Twitter during DW2013 – show your support and get behind them!
