Embrace Your Geekness Day

Just before Stan Lee sang a hymn about being a geek at The 2013 Geekie Awards, he asked a legit question, “What is a geek?” Though we are familiar with the traditional definition of words like “geek” and “nerd,” in this modern day, we’ve been forced to let go of stereotypes and realize people are a unique mix of interests. Our passions are more similar than we think, and it’s these passions that tie us together as human beings. A football player who loves comic books. A comic book geek who loves football. The days of exclusive clubs are over.
The Geekies melds many of these worlds together through our categories—gaming, entertainment and digital content, comic books, art and fashion—but also by celebrating the pure heart and soul that is indie. Artists who have passion for what they do drive independent creations. That’s what the show stands for. Passion.
To us, “geek” means someone who is wildly passionate about something. Anything.
To honor “Embrace Your Geekness Day,” we want to invite you to show us your passion. Do you have a wall of superhero toys? A shrine to your favorite soccer team? Whatever your geek may be we want to see it.
Take a photo and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag #EmbraceGeekies2014—by July 31st. Have fun. Get creative. We’ll pick our favorite photos and show them during The 2014 Geekie Awards show on August 17th, 2014, broadcast live on Twitch TV and Xbox for the world to see.
We’re proud of what we’re passionate about, and we want you to be too. Embrace your geekness!
