Help put The 36th Annual EVVY Awards on stage!


We are looking to raise $15,000 in order to give our hard-working production crew a professional quality experience and bring our focus back to professionalism and production quality.


Our goals are as follows:

  • Give students opportunities to work with equipment currently being used in the industry.

  • Fully support each department with a budget that allows for continued learning and growth.

  • Represent all Emersonians with awards across all majors.  



What is the EVVYs?

The EVVY Awards is like no other college production in the country. Modeled after professional shows such as the Emmys and the Oscars, the EVVY Awards has become the largest multi-camera, live switch event any school has to offer. 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, student work can be submitted in a wide variety of categories, creating a very competitive environment right here on campus. Submissions are sent out to local and national professional judges in their respective field to ensure a fair and experience judging process.



The EVVY Awards is not only an award show, it is also a student run organization which provides an adequate learning experience for hundreds of Emerson Students. Throughout the year, students can be reassured that they will be taught by using hands-on experience that will allow them to succeed in the professional world. No matter what age, or major, The EVVY Awards will have something for you.



The Gala:


The Gala is a sit down dinner that takes place in our gym which is beautifully transformed for the event providing a more intimate setting than the Majestic show. Not only does the Gala allow for additional student experiences in a different event setting but it allows us to represents all majors at Emerson. We wouldn’t be able to fit all 65 awards into one night so the Gala is in place to make sure everyone gets the recognition they deserve. Putting on two shows can be difficult, especially transforming a gym into a beautiful setting! The money we raise through USEED will directly help us raise the budget for the Gala so we can increase the quality of the experience for everyone.



Where our budget goes:


About half of our budget comes from Emerson College and the other half is acquired through sponsorship outreach, a Student Government Association appeal, and this USEED fundraising campaign. Our goal is to find the best sponsorship partners and fundraising tools so that every department, no matter how big or small, has access to the most abundant resources.

           



New this year:


This year we are extremely excited to be adding two new features to the show. The first being an updated submissions website. The show would not go on without student work submissions which made it vital to implement a user friendly system. Not only does this simplify the process for the students to submit their work, but it cleared the way for an improved judging system. We moved away from a ranking, to a score based system that looks at each submission through five different lenses, which allows for a well rounded look at each student's work.


We are equally excited to be incorporating an LED Screen into the scenic design to replace the traditional projector and screen. This LED Screen will allow us to integrate video packages in a more dynamic way by being able to change the height of the screen and also allow it to be moved offstage. In addition, this gives the students working on the tech team to work with a piece of equipment that is now an industry standard which you see integrated in all live award shows. This USEED campaign will help us offset these new additions to an already tight budget!



Lighting and Scenic:


The Majestic show just wouldn't be what it is without a spectacular scenic and lighting design to make The 36th Annual EVVY Awards a special night for the nominees, cast, crew, presenters, and everyone else watching the show in the theatre or at home. Like years past, our set and lighting needs push the limits of both our budget and the Cutler Majestic Stage. All donations will allow us to put on a bigger and brighter show that will make this year's EVVYs a memorable one.


Thank you for your consideration!


The EVVY Awards are about more than the trophies or dancers. They are about bringing professional experience and recognition to students across all programs and majors at Emerson College. No other organization at Emerson, or anywhere else for that matter, puts on a comparable show. We are extremely passionate about the work we do and the show that 400+ team members can put together.  It is our duty to give these students the resources to produce the best show they can and give them experiences that will help them in the future here at Emerson and in their prospective professions. Any donation of any size helps us put on a show that represents everyone!


One last thing! If you can please share this on your social media pages to help spread the word!
