The Neopies Awards

2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014


2011

The Neopies are voted by Neopians to determine the best (and worst) from the previous Neopian year. Select categories are chosen, and the Neopies Host will present you with the finalist in each category. You will have 3 days to vote in each category before the winner is announced. Here is a look back at the awards of the Second Annual Neopies.

The Finalists and Winners

Here is a list of the finalists in each category. The winners have been highlighted in yellow, and this year's loser is highlighted in grey.

Day One - Best New Paint Brush
Maractite
Maractite

This style's rune-like aquamarine markings and steel blue base have made it a highly-desired look among far more Neopians than just those who live in Maraqua.
Relic
Relic

Those who've elected to paint their Neopet with the Relic Paint Brush have certainly set their decision in stone as to which brush is this year's best...
Transparent
Transparent

This see-through paint brush style is ideal for those who believe that, when it comes to their Neopets, it's what's on the inside that truly matters...
Woodland
Woodland

Sporting a stylishly simple woodgrain finish and flowering bud accents, this paint brush option has become quite popular among Neopia's nature lovers.

Day Two - Best New Game
Hannah and the Kreludor Caves
Hannah and the Kreludor Caves

Guide Hannah through the caves of Kreludor collecting gems and keys, but keep an eye on your oxygen and fuel (plus watch out for Dr. Sloth's Kreludan Defenders, too!).

Help a Sandan named Solly use his basket to gather the gems from the evil Bori Miner's operation and carry on the good deeds begun by his owner.
Kookia
Kookia

Hordes of adorable Kookiths are overrunning Neopia; it's up to you to track them down and catch these omnipresent Petpets before it's too late!
Neopian Battlefield Legends

Relive some of the most legendary conflicts of Neopian history as you strategically select and arrange towers in an attempt to turn back invaders.

Day Three - Best Neocash Wearable Item
Icy Blue Eyes
Icy Blue Eyes

This past year, the option to adorn your Neopet with aqua blue contacts was rather popular with many customisers... just not those with Aishas and Chias, however.
Lavender Faerietale Dress
Lavender Faerietale Dress

Understandably, this ornate dress was a favourite among those who were looking for something that was delicate, yet still capable of turning heads.
Stormy Night Background
Stormy Night Background

Ahh, the urge to go out in the rain and stomp every puddle in sight. With this background, your Neopet can stay out in the rain as long as they like and not even get sick!
Valentine Tree of Lights
Valentine Tree of Lights

Among those who decided to customise their Neopets for Valentine's Day, few wearables were more desirable than this beautiful, flower-filled foreground.

Day Four - Best Caption Image
Caption Contest 1076
Caption Contest 1076

Dr. Sloth: I tried everything - writing letters, signing petitions, picketing. Despite my very best efforts, there's still no Diet Achyfi! I tell ya, doc. I feel so helpless...
Caption Contest 1107
Caption Contest 1107

mr.coconut [To Hissi]: GOOD NIGHT!
Caption Contest 1138
Caption Contest 1138

Apparently chivalry isn't dead in Neopia. Artistic ability, on the other hand... well, let's just say it's taking a break.
Caption Contest 1161
Caption Contest 1161

The Chomby felt so out of place at this gathering. After all, he was the only one... in formal attire.

Day Five - Best Site Event
Altador Cup

Neopia's most exciting annual sporting returned for its fifth year, adding a new team from Moltara and bringing back the Staff Tournament, which was won by Twitterpate.

Along with the usual set of scores to beat by AAA, Abigail, and Lulu, plus weekly Double Dares, this year's event also had a Staff Tournament, which was won by Jimmy James.

In addition to awarding daily prizes, this event also offered eight quests - four presented as riddles, and four requiring players to run errands for Kari, the Negg Faerie.

Day Six - Best NC Mall Event
Castle Nox - Corridor of Chance Access
Castle Nox - Corridor of Chance Access

Hubrid Nox may be gone, but the transfabulating powers of his Corridor of Chance live on! Who knows what wearable (and, possibly, bonus effect) your Neopet will get?
The Mystery Capsule Quest for Knowledge
The Mystery Capsule Quest for Knowledge

Collectors gathered Mystery Capsules from some of the world's wisest Neopians to assemble an impressive array of handsome wearable items.
Neggstravaganza Surprise
Neggstravaganza Surprise

How they manage to squeeze those magnificent backgrounds, foregrounds, wearable clothing items, etc. into those tiny little Neggs, we'll never know...
Stocking Stufftacular
Stocking Stufftacular

The first Stocking Stufftacular was so popular that the NC Mall brought it back for another engagement, offering another round of holiday-themed surprises.

Day Seven - Best Species Specific Wearable
Bori
Bori

One can't help but admire the ornate detail of this year's Bori wearables, which were faithfully created in the fashion of a Bori Flower Girl and Bori Miner.
Hissi
Hissi

If you've ever wanted to dress your Hissi as a glamourous pop star or a swashbuckling swordsman, then this year's Hissi Day was quite an event for you!
Jetsam
Jetsam

Those awaiting this year's Jetsam wearables were not let down by the Jetsam Lunch Lady outfit and Witch Doctor costume's debut, which arrived at a perfect time for Halloween.
Kacheek
Kacheek

This year's Kacheek wearables featured a postman's outfit and a lovely pink night ensemble, each with a pair of accessories that really round out the look.

Day Eight - Best New Avatar
Dark Lurker
Dark Lurker

Neopians out on a spooky shopping spree could find themselves the lucky recipient of this avatar...
Festival of Neggs Y12 - Quester
Festival of Neggs Y12 - Quester

If you earned this avatar, then you must've been awfully diligent about fulfilling Kari the Negg Faerie's quests during the Festival of Neggs. Well done!
Stamp Collector - The Battledome
Stamp Collector - The Battledome

Being a stamp collector isn't cheap. Neither is being a Battledomer. Therefore, is it any surprise what a page filled with Battledome-themed stamps will run you?
Wishing Well
Wishing Well

Despite numerous hints in the Editorial, Neopians have yet to figure out how to find this avatar. Here's wishing it doesn't take as long as the Bonju avatar did...

Day Nine - Best Cameo Appearance in a Plot
Captain Rourke
Captain Rourke

This Ogrin ship captain was seen ordering a refreshment in the third comic, during the part where Hanso was recounting his sale of the artefact to Hubrid Nox.
Kanrik
Kanrik

The Gelert leader of The Thieves' Guild made an appearance in the plot's seventh comic, while Hanso (a fellow guild member) and Brynn were recounting their shared past.
King Altador
King Altador

In The Faeries' Ruin, King Altador bravely led the team protecting Brynn and Hanso from legions of shadow wraiths as they tried to reverse the spell that froze the faeries.
King Jazan
King Jazan

Having witnessed Hanso stealing from the faeries after they were frozen, King Jazan was Hanso's most outspoken critic during the plot (at least, until he saved Neopia from Xandra).

Day Ten - Best Neopoint Item
Imposter Apple
Imposter Apple

Visitors to Bart's Apple Bobbing Tank found themselves comparing apples to oranges upon taking a closer look at this less than convincing citrus substitute.
Nightsteed Mace
Nightsteed Mace

Unlike the Uni for which it's named, this ferocious Battledome weapon's appearance is just as menacing when the sun is out as it is after dark.
Shrubbery
Shrubbery

This foreground item allowed Neopian nature lovers to give their Neopet's presentation an added sense of depth.
Zombie Petpet Paint Brush
Zombie Petpet Paint Brush

Just what every Neopet wants - to transform their Petpet into a rotting, fly-ridden, wild-eyed drone that staggers about slowly while emitting a low groan. Lovely!

Day Eleven - Best NC Colletible Item
Faerie Cloud Racer Collectors Background
Faerie Cloud Racer Collectors Background

This background places your Neopet at the controls of their very own Faerie Cloud Racer! Billowing smoke trail sold separately (okay, not really).
Jeran Collectors Sword
Jeran Collectors Sword

Fashioned from the finest steel in Meridell and adorned with markings that could only be the work of a true master, this sword is the choice of heroes and villains alike.
Princess Amira Collectors Arm Cuffs
Princess Amira Collectors Arm Cuffs

Some may find these jewel-encrusted cuffs a little too fabulous for everyday use, but who would expect anything less of items that come from Princess Amira's personal vault?
Princess Lunara Collectors Parasol
Princess Lunara Collectors Parasol

Originally featured in The Search for Princess Lunara, this carefully crafted parasol is ideal for shading its owner from harsh rays when it's sunny outside.

Day Twelve - Best New Petpet Species
Farnswap
Farnswap

Its striking expression may not suit all Neopians' tastes, but those who elect to make a Farnswap their Petpet are quickly won over by their warmth and enthusiasm.
Mauket
Mauket

Many seeking this Petpet who couldn't afford one due to its rarity of 90 got a nice surprise when Gold Maukets were included as prizes in this year's Games Master Challenge.
Ombat
Ombat

Neopians have certainly shown that they dig this adorable Geraptiku Petpet that loves to burrow since it was released during the first month of Year 12.
Razumi
Razumi

How could anyone visit Shenkuu's Fanciful Fauna Petpet Shop and not instantly be taken by the inquisitive nature of this charming Petpet?

Day Thirteen - Best New Neopet Colour
Chocolate Draik
Chocolate Draik

What's not to love about this tasteful Draik confection? Waffle textured wings and ears, a slather of chocolate syrup, and a topping of whipped cream and a cherry... yum!
Faerie Lutari
Faerie Lutari

Combining a neon green overlay with wings that feature soft pastel colours and speckles on a pale background, this fashion-forward style takes chances and makes them work.
Mutant Ogrin
Mutant Ogrin

Perhaps the most colourful of all mutant styles (only mutant Kaus, Pteris, or Peophins can really argue the claim), this look's quite an eyeful... even if you've got three eyes!
Royal Techo
Royal Techo

Both of the Techo's Royal Paint Brush styles feature an island-inspired look that's respectably regal and yet festively fun in a tiki sort of way.

Day Fourteen - Best Neopoint Background
Beautiful Desert Oasis Background
Beautiful Desert Oasis Background

Those who completed Kari's quest to help her find an ideal vacation spot were rewarded with this background, a reminder of the holiday hideaway's discovery.
Krawk Island Silhouette Background
Krawk Island Silhouette Background

Oh sure, it may look peaceful and relaxing, but beware... there be pirates lurkin' in them shadows!
Malicious Dark Faeries Background
Malicious Dark Faeries Background

Uh oh! It seems like there's trouble in the air. Then again, maybe that's your style...
Rocky Ocean Background
Rocky Ocean Background

Surf's up! The tide is coming in and the waves are huge. As tempting as going out for a swim may be, perhaps you should stay where it's safe for now...

Day Fifteen - Best Mystery Capsule
Bountiful Bow Mystery Capsule
Bountiful Bow Mystery Capsule

For those who simply can't get enough bows, this is the Mystery Capsule for you! It also offers access to a trio of bow-nus items unavailable anywhere else!
Holiday Gift Box Mystery Capsule
Holiday Gift Box Mystery Capsule

One of this Mystery Capsule's offerings is the Super Gift Box, which introduced the ability to give someone four items in a single gift box. Not too shabby!
NC Mall 3rd Birthday Mystery Capsule
NC Mall 3rd Birthday Mystery Capsule

Released in celebration of the NC Mall's 3rd birthday, this Mystery Capsule not only offered an opportunity to get retired Neocash items, but Limited Edition Bonus Items, too!
Spooky Moon Halloween Mystery Capsule

This Mystery Capsule offered a wide range of mostly Halloween-themed delights, including the Spooky Moon trinket, available exclusively here as a Bonus Item.

Day Sixteen - Let Us Never Speak of This Again
Key Quest Quitters
Key Quest Quitters

We've all been there... about to win a Key Quest match when your opponent suddenly vanishes! Thankfully, the release of Key Quest's rating system discourages chronic quitting.
NC Mall 13 Days of Trick or Treat Event
NC Mall 13 Days of Trick or Treat Event

Some combinations tend to go together: peanut butter and jelly, chilli and cheese, tricks and treats... except when those tricks keep Neopians from getting every treat.
Tarla's Tour of Mystery
Tarla's Tour of Mystery

Let me get this straight - I spent countless hours feverishly clicking around Neopia in search of Tarla, and all I got was a background worth 30,000 NP?!? *sigh*
Uni Clothing Shopkeeper Redraw
Uni Clothing Shopkeeper Redraw

Apparently, many Neopians were under the impression that the Unis Clothing Shopkeeper was a male Uni. Much to their surprise, "he" turned out to actually be a she.

Day Seventeen - Best Plot
The Faeries' Ruin
The Faeries' Ruin

Xandra turns Neopia's faeries to stone, kills Hubrid Nox, and brings Faerieland crashing down, but then is outmanoeuvred by the courage and cunning of Hanso and Brynn.
