!!! Student Sponsorship Program !!!

Our Student Sponsorship Program was introduced to provide non-industry specific Companies and Individuals the opportunity to proactively gift under-privileged students with the ability to attend TDC Futures.

The Design Conference will match any contribution on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a total sum of A$50,000. Significant contributions may be celebrated with an Honorary Industry or Major Sponsorship.


Curated for students, TDC Futures navigates the decision-making process behind building successful careers, while sharing the industry insights required for landing a dream creative role.

From critically acclaimed strategists to the world’s most outrageous commercial artists, TDC Futures is curated to entertain and surprise.

Hosted and moderated by some of Australia’s favourite creatives, attendees experience a first-class introduction to visual communication, professionalism, and vulnerability.

“At TDC Futures, our students connect with their heroes, mentors and peers. They come away seeing the world differently and it is evident in their work”
