AUTOGRAPH ABP
The charity: founded in 1988, Autograph ABP is a charity that works to educate the public in photography, with an emphasis on cultural identity and human rights, through exhibitions, publishing, education and the creation of a public archive of culturally diverse photography. It is based at Rivington Place, London, the home of culturally diverse contemporary art and photography in the UK, which opened in 2007. Designed by David Adjaye OBE, this prestigious award-winning building is the first new-build public gallery in London since 1968. Autograph is constantly expanding, and has recently worked on projects with The Hayward Gallery, The South Africa National Gallery, The Barbican, Harvard University and Syracuse University (both USA), DRIK (Bangladesh), Manchester Museum and Art Gallery, Amnesty International, MTV Europe Foundation and Magnum Photos, in partnership to reach yet larger audiences. The offer: Autograph's concerns give it a special place at the centre of the British art scene - the envy of the world - with its sophisticated, urbane and educated audience. Sponsorship would provide the sponsor with access to this demographic segment, and associate them with an arts organisation that is socially aware and has a proven track record. Autograph ABP's audience research has reported figures of well over 500,000. The results of a recent spot-questionnaire for an Autograph exhibition at Rivington Place showed 68% of the audience were in work and 27% were students. 100% of those questioned rated their experience of the exhibition as either Good or Excellent. Recent press coverage included a four-page feature in the Guardian, a preview on Radio 3 Night Waves, three pages in The Independent, a full page in both Metro and The Times, a double page spread in New Humanist and numerous features and reviews in the general and art press. "Your mandate and programming is highly impressive ... the breadth of the photos both aesthetically and from the point of view of content, the associated contexts of the work, and the way the show was mounted. Wonderful, memorable, subtle, and in many ways revolutionary! Congratulations!" - Doina Popescu, Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre, Toronto, 2009; "You guys rock! The best exhibitions in the country. Cutting edge and accessible. Keep doing what you are doing and more" - Kevin McCullough, Christian Aid, 2009. Contact: Indra Khanna, Curator.

BARBARA CAMPBELL EVENTS LTD: ULTIMATE PROM LIVE
"Welcome to UltimateProm live. We know that a school prom or sweet 16 is a unique experience. It's one of the first occasions when a young person will get together with their friends - and get help from their parents - to look glamorous and have fun. It's also an emotional time, as for many students it marks the end of their school years and celebrates achievements and friendships made. A Summer Ball is a time to celebrate exam results or start a new chapter that could lead to friends moving on to pastures new. The importance of these occasions should not be underestimated: in the UK on average 400 per person is spent on getting ready for Prom! UltimateProm live, Manchester is the first of our Proms in a series which will be showing throughout the country. We will then take the tour to Leeds, Birmingham and London. UltimateProm live will be an annual occasion for anyone associated with planning, or going to, a Sweet 16th, Prom or Summer Grad Ball. Visitors looking for something special will come to find it at UltimateProm live. This is a great opportunity to sponsor a show that is going to take the nation by storm.

BRITISH STUDENT FILM FESTIVAL
British Student Film Festival is looking for partnership and patronage support. The festival has a tiered sponsorship programme, ranging from Festival Sponsor to Awards Sponsor. All sponsors receive prominent logo placement on promotional print and web materials. Similarly, opportunities for further exposure can be accommodated during the festival, including the screening of adverts at subsidised rates and the distribution of promotional materials. British Student Film Festival is a national exhibition of student work in Newcastle, Liverpool, Bristol and London. The festival holds an uncompromising stance: that every film is screened and the entry requirements must be affordable. The festival will then culminate in an awards ceremony to celebrate the students' work and the winning films are announced. "We hope to not only help those filmmakers with a desire to enter the industry as a career but also to demonstrate the creativity and vision in each student. As an inclusive festival we aim to undermine any false standards to which their creativity has previously been held - we will not grade their vision. Awards will be provided for films which are exemplary in their execution, but the festival and our board of patrons defend the creative vision of each student filmmaker as unique and unquantifiable".

INSPIRE EDUCATION: UK SCHOOLS MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIPS
Inspire Education has been working with schools across the UK providing exciting and revolutionary services to all sectors of education. The organisation is passionate about raising the attainment and aspirations of students regardless of ability, to maximise their potential for learning and to achieve success in life. In 2008, along with the World Memory Sports Council, Inspire established the UK Schools Memory Championships, an exciting and innovative project which trains young people to develop their working memory; this in turn builds on confidence and can contribute to exam success. The project has gone from strength to strength with schools requesting the memory training which can also be delivered to staff in order that the methods are embedded into every curriculum subject. Inspire Education's highly trained presenters visit schools to deliver memory training to groups of students. These students are given a pre-printed training manual, which has been written by the eight times World Memory Champion Dominic O'Brien. Participating schools receive a Brain Club resource pack, which aids the students in setting up a club to promote memory development and brain training in general. After a period of training, in-school competitions take place across the UK. These competitions assess each student's ability to memorise five types of information in a test of raw memory power. The top students in the country are invited to a national final which is held in the region of the previous year's winner. The competition is a great way both of embedding memory techniques into education and developing life-long learning skills which are transferable across the curriculum and throughout life. Inspire Education constantly receives excellent feedback from schools, stating that these skills have had a positive affect on examination preparation and attainment levels. Recent research has shown that training the memory leads to a direct increase in problem solving ability, otherwise known as fluid intelligence. Participating students become proficient at putting these skills into practice to memorise and recall random words, random numbers and even the order of a shuffled deck of playing cards. As well as the realisation that they have acquired a powerful set of skills, this gives them the motivation and self confidence to memorise anything. These techniques are then effortlessly applied to their studies. The winners of last year's competition appeared on the BBC Breakfast News and the competition was featured in The Times and the Daily Telegraph. The size of the competition has increased dramatically this year and with it, the media interest is even greater. "As a sponsor you will be supporting the involvement of many schools that have limited funds to get involved in the training and competition; the growth of the competition throughout the UK and the provision of cutting edge resources for schools and students. Ultimately you will be helping to raise the attainment and aspirations of thousands of students across the UK. We regularly send promotional material to schools, educational departments and to government bodies. The competition has featured in several broadsheets and on the BBC News. You will be featured on all of our promotional material and on all of our press releases and television spots. Working with us will undoubtedly inspire you". Contact: Neil Denley, Director.

STUNTS UK LTD., trading as SCOTT MAY'S DAREDEVIL STUNT SHOW
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, welcome to Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show! As the world's largest independent touring stunt show, Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show has a lot to offer in terms of sponsorship opportunities. Currently with no sponsorship support, the show achieves an average spectator attendance of 300,000 per year. It caters for varying consumer types and gains exposure through marketing and media interest to over three million people throughout every county within the UK. This is during a touring season between March and the beginning of September. The company has plans to increase this number and extend the touring season from six months to nine months by 2010. The new itinerary will include countries such as Ireland, Canada, U.S.A, New Zealand and Australia. Given the current opportunities and the targeted growth plans for the show, the organisers have decided to offer exclusive sponsorship opportunities for hand-picked companies. The most obvious brand synergy would be with a company in the automotive industry. Therefore Stunts UK Ltd. would like to offer potential sponsors the opportunity to become a publicity partner by gaining unique media exposure through television, radio, internet and press coverage, plus live marketing with brand placement in front of their ever-growing spectator attendances, for Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show in the 2009 season.

TOP MODEL OF COLOUR
The organisers of Top Model of Colour are looking for companies that wish to sponsor/support this year's event by providing either cash sponsorship, prizes or services for the competition. Last year's show was by far the biggest and best competition to date, with over 3,500 candidates, heats around the country and a gala finale in London. This year is expected to be the biggest yet. A sponsor receives continuous publicity from all client groups, models, family members and businesses. As ever the show has attracted unprecedented press coverage, as can be seen by searching the web for 'mahogany models' or visiting http://www.mahoganymodels.co.uk/show-presspage.php to get a feel for how big the show is. The competition is open to male and female models of African, Caribbean, Asian, Oriental, Hispanic and bi- and multi-racial ethnicity. Sponsors have the option of either sponsoring with cash and receiving higher prominence on the media information distributed or sponsoring prizes in kind and being a secondary or associate sponsor/supporter. Detailed current opportunities are listed below. This is the premium talent contest for models of ethnic minority descent and fills an important gap in the talent search market for people of colour. Many of the finest models working in the country today got their first break through the competition and everyone who has taken part confirms that the experience was really useful in getting day-to-day modelling jobs. "We welcome any other ideas or suggestions that you may have and we can tailor a package specifically for you and we look forward to hearing from you. To discuss the sponsorship packages and/or to receive a sponsorship pack or to become a sponsor of the next Top Model of Colour event, please contact us". Contact: Shola Oyebade.

VICTIM SUPPORT SCOTLAND
Victim Support Scotland (VSS) is the national charity supporting people affected by crime in Scotland. VSS supports in excess of 180,000 people affected by crime in Scotland, from serious crimes such as murder and sexual assaults to housebreaking and mugging. It provides practical assistance and emotional support and information through the use of experienced staff and volunteers in every community in Scotland and the Sheriff and High Courts. VSS is celebrating its twenty-fifth year this year and as part of its celebrations the charity is hosting an international conference and best practice exchange for victim practitioners, victimologists and those with a general interest in its work. The organisation is looking for sponsors for its generic work supporting people affected by crime and for contributions to its conference this year. The conference seeks to address the issue of why the majority of people do not report the crime they experience to the authorities or, indeed, for most young people, to anyone. "If you wish to make a donation to our conference we have a range of options - Platinum at 5,000, where your logo and information is used in all materials; Gold at 2,501 to 4,999, where we publish your support on written conference material and provide an exhibition stand; Silver at 1,001 to 2,500, where we publish your support on written conference material; Bronze at 501 to 1,000, where we acknowledge your support in our reception area; and less than 500, where we say thankyou. Donations of any kind are warmly accepted to aid our generic work to support people affected by crime. It costs us 850 to develop and train a volunteer, 10 for helping someone on the phone and 25 to help one victim of crime. Will you help too?" Contact: S. Gallagher.

WETNOSE ANIMAL AID
Wetnose is a registered non-profit organisation, established for over ten years and run by Gavin and Andrea Gamby-Boulger, who have twenty-two years of dedicated experience in animal welfare issues, including running their own centre for twelve years. Wetnose raises desperately-needed funds for the smaller and less well-known animal rescue centres - like the Farm Animal Sanctuary in Worcester and The Horse Refuge in Kent. Wetnose helps with the cost of food, shelter and vets' bills. "As soon as we receive a donation the money is sent out where it is most urgently needed at that time. Wetnose Fun Day is a themed event held every year in June, encouraging people to have fun whilst raising money for animal rescue centres. In addition, there is an annual Awards Ceremony (this was held at the House of Lords in 2010, with many celebrities attending) to give recognition to the unsung heros who work tirelessly for animals in need. Supporters of Wetnose include Martin Shaw, Jenny Seagrove, David Hamilton, Wendy Turner, Nicholas Ball, Pam St Clements, Susan Jameson and Ingrid Tarrant. Please visit our website to learn more about us. There are no government grants for animal sanctuaries and with income at an all time, recession-hit low, Wetnose is needed more now than ever.

Other benefits could include corporate hospitality, exclusive sales promotions, sampling, targeting, exclusive merchandising and website links. Reading Pride wishes to foster strong, successful long-term relationships with all of their sponsors - those who can commit to and benefit from a long-term involvement and those who prefer a smaller involvement. There are several entry levels and their experience shows that talking to potential sponsors about what they want to achieve can influence both the degree and value of their involvement. The organisation prefers to custom build an agreement that benefits everyone concerned.They also take the view that sponsorship could include donations of product(s) or service(s) to an appropriate value, not necessarily cash alone. Areas available for sponsorship include headline sponsorship of the organisation and all events for the whole year or even longer; sponsorship of the organisation; sponsorship of the Showcase event; sponsorship of individual events; sponsorship of individual aspects of particular events.

OC/010 UNTOLD DESIGN CIC
Untold Design CIC is a not for profit Community Interest Company which provides affordable showcasing opportunities for new and emerging designers to introduce themselves to press, media and buyers within the fashion industry. It also creates opportunities for designers and creatives to subsist themselves in the early stages of their careers at consumer events where they are able to meet with potential customers, build an awareness of their brand and sell to clients. The ethos of Untold is to work as a collective through which a cyclical programme of support and assistance is made available, with the aim of building a long-lasting legacy for new designers and creatives. The organisation relies solely on the hard work and dedication of volunteers and visionaries to take the vision forward; however, there is so much more that they have planned to really broaden their reach and their usefulness to designers and creatives, and they now seek outside sponsorship and support that will enable them to take the organisation to the next level. Currently, Untold produces fashion shows and exhibitions during London Fashion Week, including the Fashion Diversity event produced in partnership with Mahogany Model Management and Museum of London. They have also produced shows at such venues as the Clink Prison Museum, The Foundling Museum and the Kensington Rooms and have an ongoing partnership with the London Design Festival. Untold also works with Clothes Show London and debuts at The Glam Show at Earls Court this October. "All of these opportunities have been created through the organisation since it began in 2007. Over the next year we are seeking to establish a base from which designers can have a retail presence which will also double up as a flexible workspace and training venue for new and aspiring designers. We are seeking to forge long term working relationships with our supporters and sponsors and this can be in varying forms, including services in kind and monetary donations".
