Welcome to the 6th Annual Geektown Awards, which returns once again to give you, the residents and visitors to Geektown, the chance to vote on your favourite shows, films and games of the last 12 months.
Not only that, by voting, you’ll be entered into our MASSIVE AWARDS GIVEAWAY, where you could win a ridiculously HUGE box of geeky goodies! Along with the massive main prize, we also have an awesome Mystery Box runner-up prize this year too!
2017 has been another phenomenal year of tv programming on both sides of the Atlantic, but we want to know what YOU liked the best. The Geektown Awards gives you the chance to pick the shows you found yourself binge-watching until 3 am. Or the film you had to see so badly, you went to the midnight screening. Or the game you’ve played so much, you’re afraid to look at your ‘hours played’ stats.
All you have to do is fill out the form below, and you’ll be entered into the prize draw for the MASSIVE AWARDS GIVEAWAY worth over £750! And even if you miss out on winning the main prize, you’re still in with a chance to win our Mystery Box runner-up prize worth over £125!

How we picked the shortlists, and the Geektown Radio launch podcast.
Obviously, we can’t have every show/movie etc… released this year on the list, so we had to cut it down from. This was done by getting together a panel of fellow geeks and having them vote and make suggestions until the list was a more manageable size. I’m sure some of you will have opinions on our shortlists, so feel free to add your comments below on this page.
