MADC 2024 Creative Showcase call for entries now open; Early bird deadline Monday April 8

Melbourne Advertising, Design & Creativity (MADC) has announced the hotly anticipated MADC Creative Showcase will return for 2024 on May 30, and is now calling for entries.


Launching this year’s platform of Deference for Difference, the MADC is encouraging submissions from across Victoria’s creative sphere, including advertising, design and creative professionals who deserve recognition for their work across the past year.

Says Matt Lawson, MADC co-president: “We all know this, the data proves this, but different work works. And so, it is our mission to champion the people, perspectives, techniques and ideas that all coalesce to make the different work that makes a difference, and makes Melbourne an inspiring and fun place to work.”

Says Robyn Bergmann, MADC co-vice president: “There’s not many events like the Creative Showcase on the calendar. Last year was bigger than anyone could have expected, and this year we’re excited to be doing things, well, a little differently. As we celebrate exceptional creativity from Melbourne and Victoria.”

Entries are now open across all categories, with a special early bird price available until 8 April at

Plus, after settling most of the lawsuits arising from last year’s event, the MADC is also pleased to offer early bird tickets for what will be a sell out night of celebrating great work, and showcasing Melbourne creativity through live entertainment, art and design.
