Design Broadcasters 

Melbourne Design Week (MDW) holds an annual commission that invites writers, researchers and designers to tell a story through a one-off commission that expands an underlying MDW theme. 

In 2022, each ‘design broadcaster’ produced one piece of content – such as an essay, podcast or video. In return, Broadcasters received a commissioning fee of $1,200 (the equivalent to a 1,200 word article). The 2022 Design Broadcasters were: Bianca Arthur-Hull, Madeleine Collie and Jade Irvine. In 2021, the Broadcasters were Paul van Herk, Samuel Torre and Amy Snoekstra.
