MA Photography graduate Kevin Crooks last night won 1st prize in the Deutsche Bank Award for Creative Enterprise (DBACE). Kevin came top of his category with a unanimous vote from a panel of judges which included the likes of Nigel Hurst of Saatchi Gallery.
The award gives Kevin £10,000 to continue the project and a year of professional / business/ creative mentorship supported by Deutsche Bank and their network. Kevin’s work – http://www.dbace.uk.com/projects/m62-the-trans-pennine-motorway/ is a project he began on the MA in 2015 and is in the process of developing. Deutsche Bank are very keen to work with the Photography area for next year’s award. Kevin will be speaking at this year’s Great Northern Creative Festival in the Fieldwork conference in November.
