Congratulations on becoming an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist! Welcome to your go-to website for information leading up to your big day at the regional awards gala! This is the place where you’ll learn how to assist Media One Creative in creating your company’s video vignette, which will be shown in front of over 1,000 influential business leaders at your regional gala.


At the gala, we’re going to tell your success story in a professionally produced 45-second vignette. Production of this vignette is complimentary. As a special bonus, the video will be yours to use after the National Gala.

What better way to understand what a vignette will look like than seeing an example! This video profiles 2017 finalist Mandy Renneham, CEO of Freshco.

To create your vignette, we will be inviting you to attend an in-person interview. Details will be provided by your regional specialist. We will also require additional materials, to be submitted through Dropbox by August 2nd 2019.

If you cannot attend the in-person interview, do not worry! In this case, we will create what is called a scripted vignette. Our team will write a 45-second script about your company for your vignette, that will be shown on the big screen at the gala. 

We also require additional materials for your scripted vignette, to be submitted through Dropbox by August 2nd 2019.
