The Neopies Awards


The Ninth Annual(ish) Neopies - 2021

The Neopies have returned once again, with voting to run from January 20, 2021 through February 6, 2021 February 7, 2021 (with the last new category posted on the 4th 5th). As in the past, Neopians will determine the best (and worst) from the previous Neopian year. The 15 16 categories this year are selected by TNT, and the Neopies Host will present you with the finalists in each category.

Midway through the event, TNT quietly added a new category (to make 16 total categories) called Best Standalone Advent Animation [ Revote ] to make up for the day of voting where pictures and descriptions were all swapped (January 23rd). The event ended up going for one day longer than originally scheduled.

To close out the Neopies celebration, the VIP Raffle for NC items returned starting on January 25th.

Voting

You have 3 days to vote in each category before the winner is announced, and there are 15 categories in total. Visit the official Neopies FAQ for the voting rules. Voting on the first day of each of the 15 categories being available will qualify you for a bonus final prize. 'Day One' will run during the 20th and 21st of January.

The Finalists and Winners

Here is a list of the finalists in each category, with the winner highlighted as they are announced.


January 20th/21st - Best Neopet Colour


Marble Draik

It takes a hard headed Draik to pull off these colours but it's a superb pattern and one worthy of the nomination.


Maraquan Lutari

Even by Lutari standards they are incredible swimmers. The colors are nothing short of a Maraquan marvel and could use a marvelous award.

Winner!


Burlap Meerca

Button eyes, stitching and stuffing, to win this award, this Meerca will stop at nothing... even awkward rhymes.


Zombie Bruce

You need brains to win an award... delicious Brucey Brains!


January 22nd - Best Species Specific Outfit


Oasis Eyrie

Made from some of the finest materials to come out of the Lost Desert matched with historic jewelry. This surely is the most valuable of the nominees but will it be enough for a win?


High Tech Korbat

Whether in the battledome or just on an average day of crime fighting, this advanced kit is ideal for a Korbat on a mission. This time, the mission is the award!


Kung Fu Vandagyre

Master the martial art and your own mind in Shenkuu's finest staff, hat and attire. Regardless of outcome of the award, the wearers are just proud to be nominated... and they actually mean it.


Forest Sage Ruki

Commune with mystical and magical powers of the woodlands with this magical outfit. Naturally, it's a strong candidate.

Winner!


January 23rd - Best Standalone Advent Animation


Day 18

On the Virtupets Space Station, Grundos at work getting presents ready find their groove. Get ready for a dance at the Neopies podium.

Winner!


Day 25

Taelia tries to keep her spirits up on a lonely Christmas and her magical voice floats across Neopia. Armin would love the award, but Taelia is just happy she had someone to spend day with.


Day 26

The remarkable Tuskaninny pulls off one extraordinary break. She's already written a speech, practiced her victory dance, and prepared 218 victory slushies for all her friends who believed in her from the start.


Day 29

A Darblat and mother find their way back to the Darblat migration. The Darblats were asked if they would comment on their nomination. Their response was a confused quack before they slid down the mountain.

Mixed-up Thumbnails! TNT had the thumbnail images displaying for the wrong dates. An extra day of voting was added to the end of the event to separately properly vote on this category.

January 24th - Best Advent Series


The Gift of the Xweetoki

What would you give up for the perfect gift? Brucey B was asked if he was confident about winning the award and he said "some Neopets are just lucky".


A Bad Day for Hanso

Hanso tells the highly suspect tale of how he ended up in Brightvale Jail. Brynn is concerned that winning the award might encourage Hanso to write a sequel.

Winner!


Tis the Off Season

The Terror Mountain Yooyuball team's vacation turns ugly when Osielle's meditation gets interrupted by a snowball. Prytariel was asked if this was truly the best vacation for the Terror Mountain team, and the team captain said it was certainly the most uneventful.


The Negg Tree

Kari helps decorate a Negg Tree for the holidays, only for the decorations to be deviously stolen. Alarm neggs ring! Kari is just glad she brought her spare Negg decorations and luckily there were a pile left outside in the snow so she didn't have to buy any new ones.


January 25th - Best Advent Prize


Darblat Sled

Description Enjoy a fun slide on the slopes with a sled as slippery as a Darblat's belly. Worthy of any award.


Neggnapper Stamp

A new villain has emerged in Neopia with a fine stamp to match. It's certainly a keepsake even if it doesn't win the Neopie.

Winner!


Wraith Encounters in the Haunted Woods

Seems like this precautionary guide with tales of wraith encounters could come in handy and be worthy of an award?


Christmas Slushie

This festive slushie is a delicious treat fit for an award!


January 26th - Best NP Foreground


Brightvale Jail Cell Foreground

It keeps Brightvale's worst and most mischievous at bay. It also provides a great way to protect the award that it's likely to win.


Slushie Stand Foreground

A cool, icy, colorful beverage is just what you need and a gold statue award is just what this foreground needs.


Washed Up Sandcastle Foreground

A sandcastle is beautiful and fleeting in high tide but an award would make it remembered forever.


Sea Glass Foreground

These perfectly formed pieces of Sea Glass may even upstage the award but that doesn't mean they don't deserve one.

Winner!


January 27th - Best NP Wearable


Charming Spring Background

This delightful spring background was released for Festival of Neggs! It's full of the charm that spring brings and could be worth an award!

Winner!


Clockwork Dress

This clockwork dressed came in chronologically at the end of Altador Cup! It’s the perfect outfit for those who are tracking time, maybe it’s time for a winning title?


Potion Master Cloak

This classic cloak was released for Halloween, and it’s magical aura seemed to cause a magical wonder around Neopia! Do you dare vote for it?


Tormunds Shield

This wonder was released in celebration of Meridell Day! Though it is not an exact replica of his shield it is said to be a symbol of the Discovery of Meridell, which was a feat in itself, you could say it is worthy of winning here?


January 28th - Best Site Event


Festival of Neggs

Kari returned to the festival only to discover that the Neggs were stolen before she could hide them. What kind of creature would nap neggs? Perhaps that same villain will nap the award?


Faerie Quests

Mister Krawley set up shop in Faerieland and unfortunately many faeries made the mistake of buying his wares and struggled with the magical consequences. It would be quite the consequence if it got the win.

Winner!


Saving Dacardia

Granny Hopbobbin enlisted the help of Captain Rourke to bring aid to the Storm devastated Island of Dacardia. A great cause worthy of a great award.


Altador Cup XV

The Neopia wide competition returned for an iconic fifteenth year. A second trophy is certainly not out of the question.


January 29th - Best NC Feature


Luxury Sky Box Lounge

This year's exclusive Neopets got to put their paws up, sip a cold Neocola, and enjoy all the perks of the Altador Cup VIP experience. Many called the experience award winning. Could they be right?


Doctor Neggistential's Workshop

This year at the Festival of Neggs, the eccentric Doctor set up his workshop to tinker with mechanical Neggs and give them the anti-theft devices that they needed. Who knows what he could do with a Neopie? Certainly it'll be difficult for any other nominee to steal the award.


The Crafting Faerie

Delina made it her mission this year to get back at Mister Krawley for his magical wares. Perhaps she could fix up a win here, too?


Charity Corner Gift Shop

While "Saving Dacardia" was such a success, so was the Gift Shop for loyal donors. A Neopie would not be considered charity here.

Winner!


January 30th - Best Mystery Capsule


Jubjub Power Bounce Retired Mystery Capsule

Feel the nostalgia of long retired items in this capsule. The judges of the awards certainly feel it.


NC Mall 13th Birthday Jukebox Mystery Capsule

A birthday mystery was the best way to celebrate the NC Mall. Care to make it an iconic year?


Baby Bash Retired Mystery Capsule

A celebration of those sweet adorable baby items and others you may have forgot. The Neopies have not forgotten.

Winner!


Usikicon [sic] Y22 Mystery Capsule

One of three limited edition bonus items, and many other awesome Usuki themed items. An Usuki themed Neopie wouldn't be such a bad idea, would it?


January 31st - Best Caption Image


A Minimalist Meal

At a celebratory meal, this Kougra reveals what's for dinner..."I made you a meal that has zero sugar, zero carbs, and is fat-free!" By danger_hoss By sheepmad4eva Kougra: I may have used an Invisible Paint Brush on your dinner tonight...


Petpets in a Basket

A Mynci lifts Petpets in a basket up a tree on a bright summer day...By xx_forever_irish_xx Tree: As branch manager I do not approve of this!


Nimmo in the Tub

A Bruce enters the bathroom and is shocked to find bubbly chaos waiting...By girlyli Bruce: 'uhmm... dad..?'


A Scorched Birthday

A young Scorchio makes a wish on his birthday and then...By june_scarlet Kacheek: I thought you were supposed to *blow* the candle out, not make it brighter...

Winner!


February 1st - Best NC Daily Item


Peaceful Park in Spring

On a tranquil walk through the perfect setting an award waits at the end of the path.

Winner!


Baby Pumpkin Costume

The cuteness is off the charts for this Halloween costume. The acceptance speech is sure to get a plenty of Appl-awws.


Front Porch in Fall Background

On a sheltered porch, taking a gentle rock on the porch swing, many Neopets found peace. It's a worthy contender.


Purple & Black Ponytails Wig

The split colors were a fond piece of headwear for many Neopets. The judges are fairly split about this decision, too.


February 2nd - Best NC Collectible


Black Pteri Tree Collectible

The mysterious Pteri looks down from the tree. What could it be thinking? This nomination was certainly not a mystery.

Winner!


Xenias Collectors Prankster Broom

That broom is up to no good. Here's hoping that if it wins, the award won't be influenced by its mischievous behavior.


Snowager Solace Collectible Character

Take care not to wake the Snowager... uh oh! The Neopie would fit in well among the monster's treasure.


Garins Collectors Outfit

Buckle that swash and hoist the colors high. There be an award off the port bow!


February 3rd - Best Petpet Colour


Spring Slorg

Some say it's quite fitting that the Petpet that leaves trails also has leaves. The award would go to the colour... not that observation.


Faerie Darblat

Finally wings that actually help a Darblat fly. It's a feature that the Petpet would enjoy almost as much as the Neopie.


Royal Kadoatie

Perhaps this Kadoatie is a bit highly strung but then again it's used to royalty. It would certainly treat the award with the grace and dignity it deserves.

Winner!


Chocolate Turtmid

This Turtmid will need its shell's protection even more than others. Nothing can protect it from the notoriety that it'll get from the award but it seems okay with that.


February 4th - Best New NP Item


Altador Cup XV Commemorative Stamp

For the iconic competition, it was a year worth remembering. Care to make it perfect with an award?

Winner!


Prytariel Action Figure

The captain of team Terror Mountain didn't get to lift the Altador Cup but this award is firmly in her sights.


Baelia Plushie

The Grey Faerie has already lost her wings. She needs this!


Chocolate Blossom

Delicious chocolate horticulture is all the rage. No doubt there will be few who overlook this tasty nomination.


February 5th - Best Standalone Advent Animation [ Revote ]


Day 18

On the Virtupets Space Station, Grundos at work getting presents ready find their groove. Get ready for a dance at the Neopies podium.


Day 25

Taelia tries to keep her spirits up on a lonely Christmas and her magical voice floats across Neopia. Armin would love the award, but Taelia is just happy she had someone to spend day with.

Winner!


Day 26

The remarkable Tuskaninny pulls off one extraordinary break. She's already written a speech, practiced her victory dance, and prepared 218 victory slushies for all her friends who believed in her from the start.


Day 29

A Darblat and mother find their way back to the Darblat migration. The Darblats were asked if they would comment on their nomination. Their response was a confused quack before they slid down the mountain.
