The team behind Geekadelphia, the playful geek culture blog, has announced the first ever Philly Geek Awards to take place Friday, Aug. 19 at the Academy of Natural Sciences.

Free tickets, with a suggested donation of $5, are now available, as co-founder and lead organizer Eric Smith announced last week.

“A black-tie, red carpet event, we’re taking this ‘jawn’ seriously. Think of it as the local Daytime Emmy of the Webby Awards. Presenters will take to the Academy of Natural Sciences’ stage to talk about the nominees, open up an envelope to announce the winner, all that good stuff.  Expect beautiful trophies/plaques,  a fantastic pre-awards cocktail hour  thanks to National Mechanics and DrinkPhilly, and lots of laughs.”
