The 36TH Annual EVVY Awards

The theme of The 36TH Annual EVVY Awards is The Artists. We are showcasing who Emerson students are as individual artists.

This includes The Writer, The Producer, The Performer, The Scenic Designer, The Journalist, The Marketer, And more!

However, there are also traits that unite us, as all artists. These are our passion, our drive, and our craft.

Above all, we intrinsically have a culture of collaboration that allows us to create art together, while maintaining our own individual voices within the bigger picture. Thus, we are The Artists.
