Win one of three WD backup drives for Geek Pride Day!

Are you a geek? Don’t worry if you are, because it’s not a mark of shame, but more one of respect. People who love technology are geeks, and come Friday, May 25, they can wear that pride on their sleeve, as it is Geek Pride Day.

It’s also Towel Day, a day recognised for the late Douglas Adams, writer of the fame Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, both the radio show and the books that later followed, giving geeks two things to celebrate: brilliant sci-fi comedy and all-round geekiness.

To help chime in with the geekiness, Pickr has teamed up with WD to give you the chance to win something deserving for geeks with pride: backup drives.

We’re pretty big on telling people to backup, and geeks who love their computers, their phones, their tablets and such should have a solid drive to rely on.

That’s why WD and Pickr are giving away three drives, including one 256GB WD My Passport SSD, one 1TB WD My Passport Ultra, and one 32GB SanDisk Wireless Flash drive. That’s plenty of storage going out to some lucky geeks, and to win, you just have to tell us something.


To go in the draw for our Geek Pride Day giveaway, we want to know in 25 words or less…

What is the geekiest thing you’ve ever done?

We won’t tell, but we will judge, because the geekiest things as judged by our tech-obsessed judges (and they’ve been using technology for as long as they’ve been alive) will win. You have until a minute before midnight on June 8, so dig into those memory banks and wow us with your geekdom.

This competition is now closed.
