The EVVY Awards doesn’t receive a guaranteed budget each year. Thanks to generous donations from the College’s VMA department, Emerson’s Student Government Association, private donors and other organizations, the production receives part of the funding necessary to produce the show. Submission fees and ticket sales help us close the gap.
