The Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise (DBACE) is an awards programme for final year undergraduate/postgraduate creative students and first year graduates, providing financial and business support to help launch creative careers.

The programme has just celebrated it’s 25th year, and since 1993 it has supported the launch of over 210 ventures.

In 2017, five winners of five categories (Art & Photography, Craft & Design, Film, Performance and Music) each won £10,000. All winners and shortlisted applicants also received two days of intensive small business training. Winners are currently benefiting from a business mentor to support them through the process of getting their ideas off the ground.

Thank you for your continued support of the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise (DBACE). Following our recent 25th anniversary, we recognise that the creative landscape has evolved dramatically in this time bringing with it new developments and opportunities for creative students in the UK. For this reason, we have decided to take this coming year to pause for thought and to review our awards programme. We want to ensure that it is as relevant and as beneficial to students today as it has been over the past 25 years.

The next awards programme will therefore be postponed until the 2018-2019 academic year.
