🏆 Poppies 2022: Let the Nominations Begin

It’s that glamorous time of year… the Poppies are here! 🥳🏆😍

The Poppies are our annual Poptropica fan awards, hosted here on the Poptropica Help Blog for all to enjoy. It’s our eighth year celebrating, and we’re once again welcoming you to tell us where to shine the spotlight.

The festivities will lead up to a community-wide vote, culminating into a grand party where the award winners will be announced and the PHB celebrates its 14th birthday later this month. 🎉 More on that soon!

To kick things off, the nomination round is open for one week from now until Wednesday, July 13. In the comments of this post, name up to three choices per category listed below! ✅

Poptropica Awards

🏔️ Best Side Quest: Side quests are becoming a prominent new method of storytelling in Poptropica. While some serve to continue preexisting islands (Rumpel’s Challenge, Blitz on the Fritz), others (the Baron’s Crusade, Hoptropica, etc) stand on their own. Which ones do it best?

🏝️ Best Dream Island Winner: Last Poppies, we nominated our favorites from the countless fan island submissions; this year, we’ll review those lucky three that were brought to life in-game! Dream Island contest winners include: Fairytale, Goofball, and Jade Scarab. (Due to the limited options, all three are automatically nominated.)

😀 Best Returning AS3 Island: While many beloved classic islands are still missing from the map, plenty of AS3 islands that originally went down with Flash have been ported over to Haxe and/or Steam. Which AS3 island’s reappearance delighted you the most?

😢 Most Missed AS2 Island: While it’s great to see good old AS3 islands brought back to life—alongside entirely new islands—we still mourn the loss of the ancient AS2 Flash islands, who unfortunately haven’t yet been resurrected. Which lost island do you grieve for the most?

🧝 Most Captivating Current Character: From Cinder and Rumpel to Scheherazade and the Baron, Poptropica’s packed with cool, classy, captivating characters. Out of those currently existing in-game, which characters strike your fancy?

🤴 Most Legendary Lost Character: On the flip side, many iconic Poptropican characters are now lost to the sands of time, including classics like Mordred, the Elf Queen, and El Mustachio Grande. Which ones are gone from the game, but not forgotten?

🙄 Most Ironic Name: When it comes to generating a Poptropican name, some are beautiful, some not so much… and some are so well-matched, it’s hilarious. Can you find a combo so strangely perfect it makes you snort at your screen? See our name guide for inspiration!

🪄 Most Magical Name: On the other hand, some Poptropican names are simply breathtaking. Can you come up with a gorgeous pairing fit for a king? Again, check out our name guide for some ideas.

😎 Coolest Wallpaper: Poptropica’s given us many lovely wallpapers with which to adorn our phones, tablets, and computers. Which splendid art pieces would you love to see on your screen? See them here and in the extras sections of our various Island Guides!

☹️ Most Pointless Update: This past year saw plenty of changes to Pop, some welcome and some, well, not. Out of all the twists and turns our beloved game has taken lately, which updates were most disappointing?

💬 Best Comic: Over the years, Poptropica’s penned a wide variety of awesome comics, from the graphic novel series starting with Mystery of the Map to island prequels like Pandemic Panic or Zomberry: Day Zero. Which strip entertained you the most? Browse the comics here »

👗 Best Costume Contest Winner: You might be familiar with Poptropica’s monthly costume contests, and the fabulous fan-made ‘fits they’ve brought to the game. From “Spa Day” to “Love Potion Demon,” which ones caught your eye at the Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities?


Can you recognize the PHB team’s blue carpet glamour in MaryannTheConqueror’s illustration above? More in our Look Book!

Community Awards

🤳 Funniest TikTok: Fans post Poptropica content on various social media platforms, but TikTok is especially known for its short and sweet video clips. Whether it’s cosplay, a skit, or a wacky new dance, which Pop-related shorts got your attention? Browse Pop TikTok here »

😂 Funniest Tweet: Ah, Twitter. While it may not be everyone’s favorite platform, it’s given us a great deal of funny Poptropica quotes, comments, and memes. Which Pop-related tweets did you enjoy?

🎨 Best Community Creations Theme: Community Creations is a monthly series here at the PHB showcasing the Poptropica fandom’s artistic talent. In your opinion, which theme this past year was the coolest? Any theme after July 2021 is eligible.

🤩 Most Fun Contest: Both the PHB and the official Pop Creators’ Blog host a variety of interactive contests and challenges, involving players both on and off the game. Which did you enjoy? Check some of them out here and here. Any challenge starting after July 22, 2021 qualifies.

Most Aesthetic Pinterest Board: Pinterest is an excellent place to create mood boards, and Poptropica’s not been left out of the fun. Fans have created some aesthetic image galleries that perfectly capture the essence of Poptropica’s islands. Here are a few — which do you like?

👉 Best Pop-over Special: When fans mix Poptropica with other pieces of media, we call that crossover a Pop-over! Whether inspired by books, TV shows, or movies, we’ve featured many. Which do you wish were real?

✍️ Best Official Guest Blog Post: Early last year, Poptropica started inviting players to post on their official blog — and those guest writers delivered! We’ve since been welcomed with a diversity of fan-written posts on the Creators’ Blog. Which guest post was the best read? Anything posted after July 22, 2021 is eligible.

📹 Best Fan Video: Whether it’s a walkthrough, tag, quiz, or even a Pop-themed baking tutorial, Pop content creators have given us a lot to enjoy. Tell us which amazing Pop vid deserves the top prize! Remember to include a link. Anything posted after July 22, 2021 is eligible.

🖼️ Best Fan Art: The Pop fandom is an incredibly creative place when it comes to art. Which beautiful masterpiece deserves the top prize? Check our Community Creations, DeviantArt group, and Pop’s Fan Art Features to select your faves! Anything posted after July 22, 2021 is eligible.

Remember, the nomination round begins NOW in the comments! 👇 Please limit your picks to a max of three per category. You don’t have to nominate for every category, although it is encouraged.

The voting round will begin Thursday, July 14, and the poll options will be made up of the most popular nominations. Check back then to cast your votes, but in the meantime…
