Submissions should be dark or alternative in theme as well as being geeky. Try to get a feel for the type of content we post before submitting. We do not accept straight cosplay/geek or alternative submissions. It’s not that we don’t love this stuff – there are just lots of other sites that post this type of content! We want to focus on the cross-section. Please send all submissions to Hello@GeekyFreaky.com or submit through our form on this page.
Article Submissions: Submissions for GeekyFreaky.com such as reviews, interviews, articles, collections, lists, artist or clothing features, etc must be edited for spelling and grammar.

All articles will be reviewed before being posted and may be edited for content, errors, flow, or format. All submissions must include the original source of the image or product, or will not be included. We want to support the people making this art and give them the credit they deserve.

Becoming an Official Geeky Freak: To become an official Geeky Freak we expect you to regularly contribute galleries, articles and attend events. Geeky Freaks may also be responsible in part of monitoring and creating content for social media outlets. We ask that you submit both your own original work (in the form of photos, articles, videos, art, tutorials, etc) as well as reblogging work you come across within our theme. Don’t worry, it’s not a fulltime job – but we do look for members who will actively participate in the community and contribute to the site. You must show that you have a positive attitude and can play well with others, and that you will actively participate. Once you have joined you are expected to submit content on an ongoing basis. For more information and to submit please send an email to Hello@GeekyFreaky.com
Geeky Freaky is located primarily in Los Angeles, California – but we accept submissions from all over the world. If you are a model or cosplayer who wants to submit photos but does not have access to their own photographer, or an official Geeky Freak located in greater Los Angeles, we can possibly set up an official photoshoot with you. Please email Hello@GeekyFreaky.com if you’d like to discuss this option.
