GeekWire Awards season has officially arrived: Today is the last day to get your early-bird tickets for our 12th annual celebration of Pacific Northwest tech. It’s also the first day to cast your vote across 13 categories including Startup of the Year, Health Innovation of the Year and UX Design of the Year. Grab your tickets and read on to find out how to cast your vote.
We received hundreds of nominations to recognize the entrepreneurs, products and companies in the Pacific Northwest that are changing the way we live, work and play.
Last week our judging panel, fueled by coffee and a passion for our tech community, gathered at GeekWire headquarters in Seattle to narrow the field down to five finalists in each category. Now, it’s up to you to vote for the finalist you think should take home the robot at the GeekWire Awards, presented by Wave Business, March 26 at MoPOP in Seattle.
Community voting is open now through March 6. Over the next few weeks, we will announce each category and share more details about the finalists. Catch every category by subscribing to our daily email newsletter or visiting this special coverage page.

Community votes will be factored in with votes from our judges, and then on March 26 we will announce the winners live on stage in front of more than 800 geeks at Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle.
