Deutsche Bank today announced the winners of its 22nd Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise which will be presented on 3 September 2014 at a ceremony held at its new Birmingham office. A total of 15 awards will be presented to recognise the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

Among this year’s winners are:

  • Deutsche Bank Award in Circus with the National Centre for Circus Arts - Remy Archer, Luke Garten, Tom Gask and John Thurston with ‘Circulus’.

Play for Progress (PFP) is a non-profit organisation that will design, package, and deliver music therapy and education programs to children around the world whose schooling and well-being have been compromised by conflict.

In 2015 you will be able to 'drive-in' to FULL BEAM Film Festival, a unique cinematic experience in Worcestershire. Supporting local filmmakers and offering the general public a decadent Americana experience, Kourmoulaki aims to redefine the enjoyment of classic films whilst offering non-established filmmakers the opportunity of a lifetime - to get their short film screened at a drive-in cinema, preceding a cult or classic film.


The winners will each receive £10,000 start-up capital, a business mentor from Deutsche Bank, a place on a small business training course, access to new audiences and networks and a place within the illustrious award winners’ alumni network.

Amongst last year’s winners was Mauricio Affonso, a graduate of the Royal College of Art and designer of LuffaLab (www.luffalab.com), which went on to be nominated for the Design Museum’s ‘Designs of the Year’ 2014. Lareena Hilton, Global Head of Brand Communications & Corporate Citizenship at Deutsche Bank commented: “Our aim is to continually help more young people reach their potential through our Born to Be programmes. Students today face a challenging environment as they move from their studies into the world of work. Through our Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise we help create pathways to successful futures, equipping creative young people with the business understanding they need to turn their talents into sustainable careers. We congratulate this year’s winners and hope hundreds of other students who received business plan training will also decide to launch their enterprises.”


In addition to the winners, approximately 300 art students nationwide this year received training to apply entrepreneurial thinking and techniques to their creative practice, with around 200 students developing professional plans for post-graduate careers.
