It was a blast welcoming more than 800 of you Thursday evening at the EMP in Seattle, as we honored the region’s top entrepreneurs and companies at the 2014 GeekWire Awards.

From the inspiring keynote from Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff to the awesome intro video from Killer Infographics to the actual awards ceremony itself, it was a night to remember.

If you missed out, or just want to relive the event, check out some of the tweets from those in attendance. There are also some pictures from last night further down this post — a big thanks to Eric Tra for helping us out with photography — and some funny shots from the Usnap photo booth.
