These six values reflect the spirit of The Geekie Awards and remain the foundation that guides our actions and decisions. Our values and philosophy create an environment in which we are able to inspire the masses, push for innovation in entertainment and technology, and create a top-quality production.

We want undiscovered talent to shine, and we help push their career to the next level. View some of our success stories here.
#2 Authenticity and Integrity Without Compromise
The Geekie Awards was created by geeks for geeks, and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality, most authentic production possible that honors the heart and soul of our culture. Our actions are always honest, genuine, fair and fact-driven, and our communications and processes clear and transparent. We take accountability for our deeds and learn from both our successes and our failures.
#3 Work with the Best of the Best
Every person on our team is hand-selected for being the best at what they do. We work with folks who are creative, driven, agile, high performing, down-to-Earth, and care deeply about the show and about helping one another achieve success as a unified team. Everyone on the team is pure badass.
#4 Innovate and Adapt to a Changing Industry
We thrive on new ideas and technology and push for more efficient ways of doing things to benefit our team, entrants, judges and audience in order to create the best experience for them. We embrace change and believe it leads to improvement and progress.
#5 Informed Risk-Taking Leads to Success
We will never shy away from uncharted territory and we’ll dive into the unknown without hesitation, knowing we are armed with the preparation needed for success. Our agility and lack of fear for risk taking combined with instinct allows us to discover and seize new opportunities quickly. How else do you think we could have created this show?
#6 Powerful Moments Inspire the World
On August 18, 2013, Stan Lee sang a hymn about being a geek as he accepted the Lifetime Achievement award. For those few minutes, everyone watching was connected, Stan’s words went viral across all forms of media, and another powerful moment for geeks was born. From idol speeches to creators accepting recognition for the very first time, The Geekie Awards cultivates moments that inspire creation, achievement and hard work, and bring our culture together with pride.
