Calling all alumni

Win a share of £10,000 for your creative enterprise

We're celebrating 25 years of the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise (DBACE).

To mark the event, we are offering all of our DBACE (formerly Pyramid Awards) alumni the chance to win a share of £10,000 for your creative enterprise through Crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding has become an alternative, creative way to get new projects off the ground and help established ones grow.

Here's how it works:

The first 18 projects to hit 50% of their funding target will get a boost of £250 from Deutsche Bank.

The five who raise the most will be invited to Deutsche Bank London to pitch to a panel of judges for a share of £10,000 on March 16. 

The projects will be judged on creativity and originality, economic viability as well as the impact that it may have on the wider creative industry. 

The top three will also be offered a Deutsche Bank mentor for up to a year to advise and support getting their idea off the ground.
