Seattle, Wash., alt-weekly The Stranger has tabbed five creative types for its annual Genius Awards, reports Regina Hackett of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The awards, which Stranger editor-in-chief Dan Savage describes as a middle ground between the MacArthur and Publishers Clearinghouse Awards, debuted in 2003. Like last year, each of this year's winners receives a cake frosted with the words "You're a genius!" and a promise of $5,000. A party for the winners will be held Oct. 15 at Western Bridge, a Seattle art space.
