Every year numerous legends-in-the-making step up to earn their stripes in the days leading up to and following Envision Festival. As a way to honor and commemorate their gifts, Envision is hosting our first annual “Golden Bunch Awards”. The award commends exemplary crew and staff members who go above and beyond the call of duty. It also demonstrates a set of values that reflect the culture of the event. As the first award of its kind, the Golden Bunch represents a new model for bestowing accolades and recognition in the festival industry. As a vehicle for celebration, it hones in on those who contribute more to the magic of Envision Festival and it elevates them as the most critical characters in our story. In a world where the aggrandizement of self-described influencers often trumps that of its heroes behind-the-scenes, the introduction of the Golden Bunch Awards may serve as a turning point where those who make the show a possibility can, at last, see a moment in the spotlight.
For recipients, the most important trait of the Golden Bunch awards can be found in how it democratizes the accolade one receives when they win it. Receiving the nomination alone is like the ultimate pat on the back but when that nomination becomes an award it’s a vast acknowledgment from your peers. What could be more gratifying of a job well done than to know all your teammates see and value the efforts put forth in the work.
Each of the individuals listed below were selected as winners in their distinct Golden Bunch Award category either by an overwhelming number of votes, or by a standout achievement.
