The Neopies Awards

The Fifth Annual Neopies - 2013

The Neopies are voted on each January by Neopians to determine the best (and worst) from the previous Neopian year. Select categories are presented by TNT, and the Neopies Host will present you with the finalists in each category.

You have 3 days to vote in each category before the winner is announced. Visit the official Neopies FAQ for the voting rules.

The Finalists and Winners

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

This massive Hasee was a relative pushover at first (at least, for those with the Ancient Negg Amulet), but since the Festival of Neggs has become much more difficult to beat.

Best known for guarding the Kreludor Mining Corp., this intimidating android has gone from keeping you out of the mines to keeping you from victory in the Battledome.
