When it comes to awards shows, there’s only one place you can see the Joker fighting Hawkeye and R2-D2 rolling on the red carpet—The Geekie Awards! The 1st annual Geekie Awards was held on August 18th at The Avalon Theater in Hollywood. The multi-talented Kristen Nedopak created the show, “to give indie ‘geekmakers’ a place to shine and be seen by leaders and experts in their respective industries.” I was honored to have been a Geekie judge for both the Arts & Crafts category and the Epic Cosplay Contest that was held online.
When Kristen first told me about the Geekies, I had no idea the mega-awesome show it would become! Throughout the pre-show process, Kristen’s passion, enthusiasm, and genuine love for all things geek was admirable. With her superhero work ethic and the help of a talented team, Kristen made the Geekie Awards show a huge success! I attended the sold out live show and had an absolute blast. This was an awards show unlike any other. The stage featured the Starship Enterprise D Bridge, where guests before the show could sit in the Captain’s chair! 3D Cube printers served as table centerpieces and printed rockets & robots throughout the night. The show itself was fun, entertaining, and a celebration of many talented artists & creators. So without further ado, here are some of my photos from the festivities!
Thanks Kristen Nedopak and the entire Geekie team for a night to remember! For more photos and video from the show, be sure to check out The Geekie Awards Facebook page!
