Looking to get recognized for your progeekery? Well one of my friends in the Bay Area Geek Networking group might be someone for you to check in with!
Let’s see it in his own words!
Freelance journalist and blogger Jose San Mateo is beginning a brand new contest for his website www.Jasanmateo.com called “Geek of the Week.”
This weekly feature is designed spotlight the best professional Geeks the country has to offer. If you have a career or project in tech, anime, gaming, comic books or entertainment and have a story to tell you are eligible.
This is an opportunity for Geeks that rarely have their work publicized to have the limelight and work with the media. Winners will be announced every Sunday over twitter and facebook. An interview will be conducted and a feature written during the week.
Pitch letters will be judged on their professionalism and thoughtfulness. The pitches that don’t win will be critiqued with comments sent over email. There is no limit on the entries, but a project can only be nominated once per week.
In order to enter email a pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing who you are and what your project is about.
Jose is a reporter with five years experience in daily journalism. He’s also a freelance writer on his spare time with bylines in GamesRadar and Oakland Athletics Magazines. He is also an avid Anime in Manga fan who writes Science Fiction and Fantasy on his spare time.
