Hey Poptropicans, the time has come for the PHB’s event of the year! 🥳 The Poppies are our annual Poptropica fan awards, hosted all throughout July. 🏆 It’s our seventh year celebrating, and we’re once again asking you to tell us where the spotlight deserves to shine…
To kick things off, the nomination round is open from now till Friday, July 16! Voting will begin soon after, and the award winners will be announced in a PHB party on Discord and Poptropica. More details to come!
But first, it’s time to nominate. In the comments of this post, name your choices for the award categories below:
👨🏼🎤 Hottest Male Poptropican: The bachelors are endless. Which guy character in Poptropica do you find the most attractive? (This category is for NPCs, so please don’t nominate your friends.)
👩🎤 Hottest Female Poptropican: You can never have enough bachelorettes. Which lady character across the Poptropica lands do you think is the most stunning? (Again, this category is only for NPCs.)
🤦♀️ Most Overrated Character: Poptropica is chock-full of colorful characters who many of us either love or hate. We’ve had a Poppie award for most underrated character before, but how about the most overrated? Which character gets too much attention?
🏞 Most Picturesque Scene: From forests to fire planets to the bottom of the sea, Poptropica’s provided a treasure trove of beautiful, aesthetic scenery to marvel over. Which breathtaking landscape do you think deserves the top prize?
🥺 Cutest Creature: Of all the adorable critters scattered throughout the game — pets, followers, or otherwise — which do you think are the absolute cutest? To get your memory jogging, there’s a bunch of ’em named in the comments of this post!
🥴 Okay-est Ad Island: Let’s face it, we’re not all the biggest fanatics of the ad islands, but one has to trump the rest, right? This category includes American Girl: Courtney’s Island, American Girl: Kira’s Island, SpongeBob Island, and SpongeBob: Kamp Koral Island. (Because of the limited options, all are automatically nominated.)
🎁 Coolest Member Gift: With islands not coming out as often as they used to, there aren’t many perks of having a membership nowadays. One thing we do get, though, is members’ gifts — and among them are some pretty rad items. Which ones catch your fancy?
😵 Ickiest Poptropica Name: Poptropican names come in all sorts of kooky combinations and sometimes that combo isn’t so lovely. Can you come up with a pairing that’s utterly gut-wrenching? Our Poptropica Names page is an excellent source for finding the perfect (or in this case, imperfect) candidate for this category.
😎 Bougiest Poptropica Name: On the flip side, some lucky players are graced with the best possible name. Can you impress us with a name that sounds like it belongs to a superstar? You can also browse our names page for this category too.
😭 Most Missed Feature: Numerous beloved features have come and gone. Fact Monster, Costumizer, Realms, the photo booth, the old friends page… the list goes on. I suppose it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. What are the facets you desperately wish would come back?
😍 Finest Piece of Merch: Poptropica dropped a ton of awesome merch on Zazzle back in October including everything from shirts, hats, and even stationery. Which ones are you rushing to add to your cart?
🏝 Best Dream Island: The community is thriving with creativity, and it was definitely apparent during the Create Your Dream Island Contest late last year. You can check out various submissions under the My Dream Island category to read up on some of these imaginative ideas. Which idea would you like to become a reality?
🃏 Silliest PHB April Fools’ Prank: Like the Poppies, April Fools’ Day is undoubtedly one of our favorite times here on the PHB. It’s been an annual tradition for a long while now and we’ve done tons of pranks over the years. Which one had you fooled, or simply chuckling at your screen?
🎨 Best Fan Art of the Year: Poptropican artists from all over have created many eye-catching pieces in the past year, but which one was your favorite? Our We-Love-Poptropica DeviantArt group and Community Creations posts are great places to start looking! (Anything published after July 26, 2020 is eligible for the award.)
🏡 Coolest Clubhouse: Just like dream islands, the PHB has highlighted a plethora of spectacular clubhouse tours over the last few months. It’s incredible what lengths some Poptropicans go to to make a space their very own. See all the awesome cribs in our archives »
🎉 Most Popping PHB Party: Last August was the Tribal Tournament Closing Ceremony and not too long afterward was the Beev Party. In December, we bid farewell to Flash at our Gone in a Flash Holiday Party, and more recently we held our PHC Open House and Pride Palooza. Which one pumped you up most and was most memorable? (Because of the limited options, all are automatically nominated.)
🎥 Fan Favorite Video: We know our fellow Poptropica content creators work diligently to produce their stuff. Whether it’s a speedpaint, a top 10 list, a Poptropica tag video, or something else, there’s so much good stuff out there! To start with, you can browse last year’s Poptropica Month playlist created by Dimension Bros, or you can do some of your own searching on YouTube or TikTok. Be sure to include links! (Anything published after July 26, 2020 is eligible for the award.)
Remember, the nomination round begins now, so share in the comments who/what you think is worthy of the awards! Please limit your nominations to a max of three per award. You don’t have to nominate for every category, but the more the merrier! ✨
The voting round starts the following Saturday on July 17, and the poll options will be made up of the most popular nominations. Be sure to check back then to cast your votes, but in the meantime…
