It was a Logie and AFI nominee, won the NSW Premier’s History Award, the Manning Clark House National Cultural Group Award for making an outstanding contribution to the quality of Australian cultural life, and won a Canadian Academy Award.

Wain’s television feature Love Letters from a War was described by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘stunning, illuminating and devastating..’ It won the World Silver Medal for docudrama at the New York Festival.
