After five years honoring the city’s best and brightest, the Philadelphia Geek Awards announced Saturday night at its 2015 ceremony the launch of a $2,000 “Geek Grant” fund to go towards a local individual or organization.

The announcement was made by Geek Awards founder Eric Smith near the end of an energetic ceremony featuring opera-singing presenters, Spider-Man cufflinks, magic tricks and a steady clip of awkward, funny acceptance speeches.

Smith told Technical.ly that the grant was possible because the volunteer-run organization ran a surplus this year. The City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture & Creative Economy is also providing half of the funding.
