Perth's only advertising and design club (PADC) is now in its 31st year. The club is a non-political, non-profit organisation with the aim of raising the standards of creative excellence in all creative areas within Western Australia. Its charter is to set standards of creative excellence, to promote this concept in the business arena and to educate and inspire the next generation of creatives.
Awarding creative excellence takes place at our gala event, the annual PADC awards night. This year we have really raised the bar by securing the new Fraser's State Reception Centre as the venue for the 2012 Award Show. Although the venue itself is stunning, the City of Perth skyline will provide a fitting and majestic backdrop for what will be our industry’s night of nights.
Driven to be a creative community, the club has over 100 members representing a diverse range of professional talent including creative directors, art directors, graphic designers, digital creatives, flash designers, web developers, copywriters, photographers, commercial film directors, editors sound engineers, 3D animators, digital retouchers and special effect artists and students.
Continuing to acknowledge and celebrate creative excellence in Western Australia is the aim of the PADC, and clubs like ours need the support of the creative community. In addition, we also intend to insure that the advertising industry is showcased with the professionalism, prestige it deserves but like anything the PADC will only be as good as the support it receives from the community.
