Melbourne Advertising & Design Club

Melbourne Advertising & Design Club

The MADC is Australia’s oldest advertising club. Since 1955, we’ve celebrated and elevated the very best work, people and companies Melbourne’s thriving creative community can muster.

While we’re proud of our heritage, a reimagined and reinvigorated MADC has ushered in the new, with a fresh approach to celebrating Melbourne creativity. One that is inclusive of the stalwarts and a new generation of legends in the making.

Our Award nights are legendary, leaving a legacy etched in our famous MADC Star awards, and in the memories of our most seasoned veterans. The now three-year-old ‘MADC Stars Creative Showcase’ has introduced a new kind of award show. No gold, silver or bronze, simply a curated collection of the best of the best.

Our ‘MADC Presents’ series is a resounding success. Amazing value, this regular fixture in the creative calendar is an opportunity to be inspired by industry luminaries, while sharing a beer and chinwag with your Melbourne ad comrades.

‘MADC Creative LIAisons’, our collaboration with the London International Awards, sees us host an inspiring series of advertising speakers, creative workshops and panel discussions. It runs concurrently with LIA judging. The competition element of the event, in its inaugural year, saw one lucky young Melbourne creative team win a trip to LA.

And the ‘MADC One Show Portfolio Night’ sees us host an annual, once in a lifetime opportunity for up and coming young creatives, their books being seen and judged by Melbourne’s top CD’s, with one winner each year. This prestigious global event, based in NYC, chose the MADC as their Melbourne hosts.

We’re lucky to call Melbourne home. And the MADC is committed to building on our reputation as one of the world’s most creative cities in every way we can.
