Creative Contest Prizes
The Art Gallery, Caption Contest, Poetry Gallery, and Storytelling Contest all award prizes. Although each of the contests award trophies for winning, they also come along with items and Neopoints every single time you win!
The standard Neopoint amount varies between contests, with 1,000 Neopoints being awarded for a winning poem, 2,000 Neopoints for a winning Storytelling entry, and a whopping 10,000 Neopoints for getting into the Art Gallery or placing in the top 5 entries to the Caption Contest (all other caption winners get 5,000 Neopoints). A single item is also awarded from all contests, and this is randomly selected from a pool of possible prizes. A list of the possible prizes is as follows.
NOTE: The prize pool for contests was updated in the Summer of 2012 - this list reflects the current prizes and not those given out before then.
In special 100th rounds of the contests, things work a little differently, and this varies between contests. Some will award extra items, and some will award items instead of the regular random prize. The Art Gallery does not have any round-specific prizes.
In the Poetry Gallery, an Alstaf Poogle collectable card is awarded in addition to the regular item prize. The exception to this was round 1,000, which awarded the Millennial Pen instead of the regular item prize, meaning that users received the pen and the collectable card. Note: Every 100th Poetry gallery is always made up of previous winners that the judge reposts, you can't physically enter this round.
The Storytelling 100th round awards The Storyteller collectable card in addition to the normal random item prize. However, The Storyteller is normally awarded at a later date, not along with the normal prize.
The Caption Contest normally works by awarding the regular random item prize every 100th round, in addition to the 'Caption Contest - Funny' avatar. However, the 1,000th and 1,300th rounds have awarded the Ghostkerchief Pen instead of the regular random item prize.
