Wayne Denning - Inaugural Champion

Wayne Denning

Executive Producer and Managing Director - Carbon Media

Wayne is a proud Birra Gubba man from Blackwater, Central Queensland. In 2006 he left a successful career in Federal Government to start Carbon Media, a full service creative agency, determined to give a positive voice to Indigenous Australians through delivery of engaging content and compelling story telling.

Wayne’s commercial work, documentaries and children’s shows (including Sesame Street) for NITV, ABC and SBS, corporations and government, have:

  • promoted Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture worldwide

  • led the way for further opportunities for Indigenous Australians to have a stake in the digital economy.

The Indigenous children’s television shows, such as Go Lingo and Letterbox (for ABC3 and NITV), have a strong education focus and promote spelling and literacy.

Wayne globally promotes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through media and digital forms. It is important for Indigenous cultures and languages to be present and alive in the digital world, online, on TV and on mobiles.
