Please help students achieve their goals and put on the best EVVYs yet.

After working on the EVVYs for the past 4 years, I've been able to see production after production come to life. Each year The EVVY Awards reaches hundreds of students who either work on the show or submit. As the Executive Producer in charge of Creative Content for this years show, I want to create a production for the students. A show that celebrates all of the hard work and dedication here at Emerson. Please help us in creating a show that we can be proud of!

Support us in recognizing and fostering the passions of students at Emerson!

About the EVVYs:

The EVVY Awards is like no other college production in the country. Modeled after professional shows such as The Emmys and The Academy Awards, The EVVY Awards has become the largest student-produced, multi-camera, live switch event in the nation. This award winning show has become nationally recognized with a first place award at the National Association of College Broadcasters awards and has received two national Telly Awards. Throughout the year, Emerson students can submit their work in a wide variety of categories, creating a very competitive environment right here on campus. These submissions are then sent out to professional judges in their respective field to ensure a fair and experienced judging process. Notable past judges have included Rachel Dratch of Saturday Night Live, Wendey Stanzler, a director from Grey’s Anatomy, and Matt Cheese, editor of Finding Neverland. Previous on stage appearances have included Sean Hayes, Denis Leary, Matt Lauer and John Cusack.




Help us create the best EVVYs yet:
This year for our show, we’d like to expand the creative boundaries of the EVVYs. By raising our goal of $20,000 our teams will be able to afford to make their visions a reality. More than an awards show, the EVVYs is a student-run organization that provides an unmatched learning experience for 300 Emerson students as they create a professional-quality event over 13 months. With your help, these hard working students will be able to meet their full potential and be able to create their vision! 

What we're working with: The beautiful Cutler Majestic Theatre




What you'll be funding: 

The Banquet
The EVVY Awards offers awards in all major areas of study and focus at Emerson. With close to 50 awards, we end up having to have two different events: The Majestic Show and The Banquet. The Banquet, which is a dinner show, is held 3 weeks before our main show and offers numerous awards to such specialties as journalism, marketing, and online media. The money donated to us would give our designers access to opportunities that would not be available otherwise. Putting more money towards the banquet would allow us to transform our venue (Emerson's Gymnasium) to be fit for an awards show and giving those students who are nominated the best experience they can possibly have. It isn't easy turning a gym into a glamorous 5-star event. Help us make that happen so that all student work is recognized! 

Lighting and Scenic Design
The EVVYs is held in the prestigious Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston. From the help of your donations we can create a spectacular show using the abilities of our scenic and lighting designers. This money can provide our teams with the resources needed to achieve their aspirations. With no limitations they can reach a level of professionalism that is unmatched.

Support Up-and-Coming Talent. Produce EVVY 34! 

Throughout the year, students can be reassured that they will be taught through hands-on experience how to succeed in the professional world. It's an opportunity for students to get real-world experience before they graduate, which is extremely valuable and far too rare for most college students. Those attending the event will be able to see the caliber of work that Emerson students are capable of producing.Your donation allows hundreds of Emerson students to gain valuable experience to pursue their career-of-choice in the entertainment or marketing industry.

Wow! We want to thank EVERYONE for the amazing amount of support and encouragement that we have received in the past 30 days. 130 supporters. Thousands of emails. Dozens of social media posts. We could not be more grateful. 

We might not have quite hit our goal, but $15,000 is a success to us! With those gifts, we will be able to increase the scale of EVVY 34 and take designs from paper to stage. Our team of over 300 Emerson students thanks you, from the bottom of our hearts. 

This is it!

Again, thank you so much for your support so far. We are so grateful for the generous gifts that we have received so far. The EVVYs is looking brighter than ever and we have you to appreciate for that!

Be a part of our family and our vision! Without you, we can't do this.



5 Days to Go! 

  Published on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 at 09:20 PM (EST)
The clock is ticking!

We only have 5 days left to conquer our goal. At this point in time, our executive producers are rallying our team to ensure that we reach out to as many people as possible. Our show depends on this campaign. Please help us by spreading the word! We're hoping for an incredible comeback in this fundraiser - and you can be an essential part of that. 

We are passionate about The EVVY Awards. We are passionate about the work that we do. We just need your help to make it possible!



7 Days Left! 

  Published on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 at 03:51 PM (EST)
Only one week left to donate!

Last week, our teams submitted their initial budgets. And in the words of our Director last night: "Creativity is expensive." 

Ensure that Emerson students have the chance to create freely and without financial limitation. Help us create something incredible. Please consider promoting our campaign on social media, donating to our efforts, and/or sending out some emails on our behalf! Even $5 makes a huge difference. We are pushing harder now than ever before. 





What You're Funding: Lighting 

  Published on Monday, Feb. 16, 2015 at 07:10 PM (EST)
You got a taste of what kind of show EVVY 34 will be in our campaign video. Backstage. Steel. Urban. Industrial. The set is bigger than ever. Which also means our lights need to be better than ever. 

Treat yourself to this little tidbit from our lighting department - the student team that turns the Cutler Majestic Theatre into a star-studded night of celebration and performance. For a live television event, lighting is everything. 

Here is just one image that is inspiring our lighting designers: 

This year, we're thinking big. This image can give you a little insight into what could happen this year on The EVVYs stage. Check out our show in May to see what this will turn into. 

Support our lighting team's vision and consider donating right now! If a donation isn't in the cards right now, share this on social media to help get our dream out there. 


Whoaaaa we're halfway there! 

  Published on Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015 at 05:38 PM (EST)
Whoaaa-oh! Livin' on a prayer. (How many fundraising campaigns do you think have used that as an update title?) 

In case you couldn't tell by the Bon Jovi reference, we are now halfway through our campaign! We are mere single digit percentage points away from being at 50%. During these next two weeks, we are going to be trying out hardest to reach our goal of $20,000.

That $20,000 means possibilities for our student teams. It means a high quality, professional production. It means we have a shot at being the best EVVYs yet! 

We believe Bon Jovi is on our side*. Are you?

*Bon Jovi is in no way affiliated with The EVVY Awards, but doesn't he look great? 
 


What You're Funding: The Banquet 

  Published on Monday, Feb. 9, 2015 at 08:30 PM (EST)
In addition to our main stage show at the Cutler Majestic Theatre, we have an equally fabulous EVVY Awards Banquet that takes place a week before the live television event. Like all award shows, not every single category can be awarded on camera. That doesn't mean those categories don't deserve the red carpet treatment! The Banquet ensures ALL student nominees are applauded. 

Here's a little taste of what categories are exclusively honored at The Banquet: Outstanding Prose, Outstanding Social Advocacy Campaign, Outstanding Internet Broadcast, Outstanding Integrated Marketing Campaign, Outstanding News Article, Outstanding Choreography, AND MORE. 

This year, The EVVY Awards is dedicated to making The Banquet bigger and better than ever. This is ONLY possible if we reach our goal for this fundraiser. Make sure that all Emerson students are honored by giving to the cause!

Peek Inside Our Table Meeting 

  Published on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015 at 05:13 PM (EST)


A lot of the EVVYs process is collaboration, (and meetings - an outrageous amount of meetings). Here's a peek inside our Table Meeting, a weekly meeting for The 34th Annual EVVY Awards' department heads and key players! Meet the faces that are making The EVVYs possible. 

Support these lovely faces by donating to our campaign! We're at 42% right now and we are incredibly thankful for all the support so far. Encourage and inspire Emerson's up-and-coming artists, designers, innovators, marketers, and performers. We've got big dreams. Let's make them happen. 










30% and Rising! 

  Published on Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015 at 07:47 PM (EST)
65% of our subway cars may be disabled right now in Boston, but we are still right on track! 

(See what we did there?)

As our lovely city of Boston experiences record-breaking snow, our teams are still hard at work. This past week, we held our General Meeting and unveiled over TWO HUNDRED job positions that Emerson students can apply for to work on The 34th Annual EVVY Awards. From tech to creative to content to logistics, the production train is constantly moving. 

Make sure that our new hires have something incredible to work on! We still have 70% of our fundraising goal to cover and we need your support more than ever. 


- Our General Meeting! Look at all those prospective EVVYs team members. 

Paula Abdul Supports the EVVYs: What About You?  

  Published on Friday, Jan. 30, 2015 at 09:29 PM (EST)


This just in: Our fundraising campaign now has the blessing of Paula Abdul. In just a few days, we have reached 20% of our fundraising goal. We are hoping to hit 30% by next week!

Paula has pledged her support. Will you? 





Juno Can't Stop Us! 

  Published on Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015 at 05:14 PM (EST)
The MBTA was closed. The snow was (and still is) everywhere. Emerson College was (and still is) closed. But that didn't stop us from launching our campaign! 

It has been less than 24 hours since we launched and we already have 17 supporters and are approaching 10% of our goal! Thank you thank you thank you. 

Join our crusade to $20,000 to create the best EVVYs yet! Even the smallest donation makes a difference. For the 300 students that work on EVVY 34, your generosity allows them to create without limits.

If a donation simply isn’t in the cards right now, please consider promoting our campaign via social media, in person, or email! Your support is extremely appreciated. Onwards!
