The Dreamhouse at the UN Media Awards in Melbourne

Monday, October 27, 2014

Justin, Kirk and their mums Margaret and Peta travelled to Melbourne for The United Nations Association of Australia Media Awards on Friday night. Executive producers Brian and Celia, and series director Ruth also travelled to the event.

The Dreamhouse was a finalist in the awards, which "recognise those in the media whose work highlights and champions human rights and social justice issues and stimulates public debate and changes in public and private policy."

It is such an honour to be a finalist amongst the cream of Australia's writers, journalists and filmmakers. The series was applauded for its contribution to the national conversation on disability, and the housemates for providing such heart, humour and honesty. It was a memorable trip for all. Justin and Kirk were widely recognised and took all of this attention in their stride.
