Melbourne has endured the longest lockdown in the world, and we should be proud.

And during this world-record lockdown we still managed to create world-class work, and this should be praised.

It’s not often that you think, “you know what would make this work better? A pandemic.” It was impossibly hard to make great work, and it’s usually only incredibly hard. So, we’re here to acknowledge that you deserve a medal. You all do. Yet, that would be a rather long award show, and go against the patented brevity of formal proceedings that you’ve come to relish. So as always, we will only be awarding gold. The best work, of some tough years, presented quickly, yet triumphantly! And then we shall sashay into the fun part. Because the only thing you deserve more than a medal is a party. 

So, from everyone on the MADC Committee, we look forward to celebrating some of the world’s best work, with some of the world’s best people.

Simon Thomas & Matt Lawson
Co-Presidents of the MADC
