Shortlists for BDWAbyWIM 2017

“To win an award in the BDWAbyWIM is going to be even harder than usual this year. There is no doubt the competition is tougher and the benchmark has gone up as more writers, bloggers, vloggers, photographers and film makers compete for their share of voice and find ever more creative ways to connect and find their own audience. What’’s more the BDWAbyWIM have become even more international, attracting high quality entries from all the world so to stand out and be rewarded as a BDWAbyWIM finalist or winner will truly be a global achievement”” Richard Siddle, Chair of BDWAbyWIM awards.
