Philadelphia Geek Awards

Philadelphia Geek Awards 2011 recipeints

The Philadelphia Geek Awards is an annual ceremony hosted by Geekadelphia and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University that honors geeks in the greater Philadelphia region. From local game developers to comic book artists, social media marketers to the arts & culture community, the awards highlight a bit of everything.

The next Philly Geek Awards ceremony will be at the Academy of Natural Sciences on Saturday, August 16, 2014. It’s a black tie, red carpet event. Think the Oscars, but a lot sillier and a lot more fun.

Stay tuned for information about tickets. Check out and follow @phlgeekawards and @AcadNatSci on Twitter for announcements regarding sales, nominees, and more.
