The Deutsche Bank Award for Creative Enterprises has provided first-class business advice and financial support to arts students for over 20 years. LAMDA was invited to join this exciting scheme in 2006 and now offers the Deutsche Bank Award in Dramatic Arts each year.

Deutsche Bank’s support helps our young artists (actors, directors, stage managers and technicians) launch their professional career in the crucial first year after graduation. Final-year students apply with innovative projects that require seed funding. The winner benefits from a prize of £10,000, a professional business training course and the invaluable advice of a Deutsche Bank business mentor for the following year as they realise their project. 

Recent LAMDA winners of the Deutsche Bank Award in Dramatic Arts include Misunderstood ProductionsPatrick Gleeson and Nathan Crossan-Smith.

“The Deutsche Bank Award has allowed me to try something bold and unconventional, and something that would otherwise have remained a pipe dream. In an industry that's permanently cash-strapped and short on time, to be given the opportunity and freedom to try something that doesn't fit the mould, and right at the beginning of my career, is a fantastic luxury for which I will always be grateful.”
Patrick Gleeson 
Deutsche Bank Award in Dramatic Arts winner, 2011
