Geek of the Year! Perhaps the most coveted award in the Philly Geek Awards, Geek of the Year honors an outstanding geeky individual here in Philadelphia. We’ve made a point to focus on passionate individuals that have made an impact here which the city wouldn’t be the same without.
Story of the Year isn’t just a rock band, it’s a category that spotlights a popular geek story. Whether it’s a huge event or a scientific breakthrough, Story of the Year honors a local headline that became a bigger story, drawing attention to Philadelphia’s thriving geek community.
As anyone involved working with social media can tell you, there’s a lot more to a great social media project than posting links to things on Facebook. Through social media, a single individual or a giant company can inform, inspire, and change the world.
We’ve seen a lot of great movies come out of Philadelphia. The Sixth Sense. Rocky. Silver Linings Playbook. 12 Monkeys. The list goes on. Feature Length Indie Film of the Year acknowledges the underdogs, awarding an extraordinary indie film shot here in Philadelphia.
