The annual Deutsche Bank Pyramid Awards have been supporting talented and creative graduates from some of the leading art institutions in the UK for the past 15 years. As an active supporter of the visual and performing arts internationally, Deutsche Bank recognises entrepreneurship and innovation within graduating art students. The Pyramid Awards scheme was launched to offer practical and financial support to freelance artists, craftspeople, designers and performers to start a business or conduct a project in the crucial year after leaving college.
This year, to celebrate the 15th annual Pyramid Awards, Deutsche Bank is staging a performance based awards ceremony featuring previous winners. The evening promises exciting performances by some of the most talented artists, who are rapidly establishing reputations for themselves both nationally and internationally. This year’s Pyramid Award winners will be announced in between performances. The ceremony will be held at the Circus Space in London's Hoxton Square on Tuesday 10th July 2007.
Pieces will be performed by:

The performance based awards ceremony is an opportunity to recognise the achievements and entrepreneurship of award winners and to celebrate the values of innovation and performance recognised by the Pyramid Awards scheme.”

Note to Editors
1. The Deutsche Bank Pyramid Awards scheme recognises entrepreneurship and innovation within graduating art students from some of the leading art institutions in the UK. Financial awards are presented to the Pyramid Award winners to start a business or conduct a project in the crucial year after leaving college.
Deutsche Bank works with the following schools in determining the Awards:
Deutsche Bank will make 10 Awards of £8,000 each which will be paid to the winners in two tranches by the appropriate college – the college will decide when the money is distributed.
In addition to financial awards, Pyramid winners will benefit from a Deutsche Bank business mentor to help guide them in their project through their first year. Deutsche Bank will also help winners access a small business training course at the East London Small Business Centre and will provide an opportunity to participate in the Bank’s London-based community and arts programmes. Such participation often brings the winners into contact with people able to identify future business opportunities.
