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 theme of The 37th Annual EVVY Awards is Inspirations. This year, our content will focus on what inspires us. We will showcase the works and ideas that have shaped Emerson students as artists and communicators, and reflect on how their inspirations impact their work today. By looking back, we are able to learn and move forward. Somewhere along the line we have all seen a piece of media or art and said to ourselves, "I want to do that too!" EVVY37 is a year to celebrate that spark, and reflect on how we in turn create inspirational work. Nothing is created in a vacuum- and this is a good thing!
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 night truly is special for everyone involved, and we want to ensure that this years gala is just as successful. 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.
