We’ve got some great news to share! TechGeek has been nominated for FIVE IT Journalism Awards – affectionately called The Lizzies – for the work we’ve produced last year; and we’re up against some pretty good sites.

TechGeek is nominated for Best Website, Best News Coverage, Best Personal Technology Coverage, Best Gaming Coverage and Best Independent Media. For Best Independent Media, we are up against our good friends Reckoner, Ausdroid and Live Tech Australia; plus Women in Tech and Player Attack.

On a personal note, I believe 2014 was a good year for TechGeek. We’ve produced in-depth reviews on gadgets and video games, insightful opinions on technology, and reporting on serious issues underreported by the tech press (like Crossing the Line). We also got to interview Dr. Michio Kaku, and have a bit of fun along the way – like reviewing Goat Simulator and getting free chocolate in the city.

Just being nominated with our fellow indie friends, Fairfax Media, Allure Media and CBS Interactive is enough to validate the quality work we do. That said, I’d also like to win an award this year – wish us luck!

Congrats to everyone who got nominated!
