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.
