Welcome to MPC's new digital home

Welcome to the new website of the Melbourne Press Club.

We hope you will find this an inviting and lively environment to engage with the Club and keep up with the latest activities and news. 

Check out some of the new features:

  • A new-look home page, your portal to book in to coming events, hear about recent activities and keep up with the news
  • Latest developments in the Australian media industry via a weekly brief generously provided by AAP Medianet
  • A new home for the Australian Media Hall of Fame, where you can watch videos and read profiles of our first inductees
  • Full details and archives for the Quills and our other awards, The Edit forum for young journalists and more.

The site changes include substantial functional updates: a portal where members can register and refresh their personal details, a site-wide search function to find archived material and integrated social media buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Youtube.

We will soon launch a new channel through the site for managing membership applications, payments and automated renewals.

We are also exploring new ways of showcasing content that supports our mission to celebrate excellence in Victorian and national journalism, including forums for discussion on important industry issues.

We welcome your feedback. You can contact us at: admin@melbournepressclub.com.

Our great thanks to James Renton of Master Publisher for his generous work in making this site a reality.
