The Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise help young creative entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality. Aspiring artists, designers and performers who want to go into business and need practical and financial support are being targeted through the programme.
2017 sees prizes of £10,000 for winners of the following five categories:
- Arts & Photography
- Craft & Design
The intention is to enable art students explore, develop and establish their creative ideas into sustainable ventures – through business planning training, mentoring and capital funding for starting-up in business.
All applicants also need to ensure that their university is registered to DBACE. The list of the current registered universities can be found here. If yours isn’t on the list, please ask your tutor to complete this free and short form to get your university registered.
All graduating arts degree students in the UK (and those who have graduated within one year) will be eligible to apply for the Awards. Graduating students from a relevant department of a participating college and those who intend to follow a freelance career or develop a specific project are also eligible to apply.
Applications are open until 12th March 2017. e-Mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
