The 2013 Geekie Awards was our first-ever show, and it was AMAZING! For those of you who don’t know, this is my baby–my brain child and creation, and an attempt to create a show that gives independent artists like myself an opportunity to showcase work and receive awards at a huge, Hollywood event. I wanted to share the fun and highlights with everyone, enjoy! ~ Kristen
The Geekie Awards® is an annual award show and event that takes place in August in Hollywood, CA. The show intermixes a live ceremony with live- action stunts, interactive experiences and pre-taped, custom created geek-genre digital content to create an event that combines Hollywood pizazz with the fun of a comic or tech convention. Live streaming, the red carpet, celebrity attendance and social media interaction provide access and trending opportunities to an international audience.
Details for the 2014 event will be released this summer!
