Amethyst Awards

Winter Garden Theatre – Toronto, ON

Since 2007, the Ontario Public Service (OPS) has called upon FMAV to create an unforgettable experience for their annual Amethyst Awards – a spectacular awards ceremony that recognizes and honours the valuable contributions of Ontario’s most outstanding public servants.

With a mandate to push the technical and creative envelope further year over year, the talented team at FMAV steps up the challenge and delivers annually. From visual journeys across Canada to the enchanting sounds of the Far East to edge-of-your-seat excitement of aerial acrobats, the Amethyst Awards never fails to be a multisensory treat for its celebrated audience.

Most recently, for the 2013 Amethyst Awards, FMAV conceived and built a multimedia production that profiled each award recipient and their unique contribution. Extending the theme throughout the event, video screens, animations, set pieces and even décor were perfect circles to support the theme of the ‘Circle of Excellence’.

To maximize the impact of this dramatic theme, a virtual 3D model of the entire stage was developed before FMAV’s hyper-perfectionist artists, technicians and engineers applied their renowned precision to ensure that every projection hits its uniquely screen target flawlessly.

And, like every year prior, FMAV’s technical innovations and creative solutions were perfectly aligned to the OPS’s own strategic objectives and direction, ensuring the production was kept on point – and on budget.

As a total event solution provider, FMAV also successfully managed the event elements that extend beyond the audience experience: logistics, guest registration, simultaneous interpretation, collateral material design and production, stage and talent management, venue relations, financial/budget management and much more.


“Impeccable and flawless implementation is a high standard one that for the past 4 years FMAV has provided by combining their creative and technical knowhow with an in-depth understanding of the government needs and right sensitivities to accessibility raising the bar and production value year after year.”
