Neopets HelpCaption Contest FAQ
How often is the Caption Contest?
A new Caption Contest
is announced every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The winners are announced when the new contest starts.
For example if you entered Monday's contest, the winners will be awarded their prizes on
Note - During holidays the Caption Contest may be a day late.
Why isn't my caption showing up?
Captions must be approved before they will show up on the site. Every
time you hit submit your caption is entered into the contest (entering more than once will not increase your chance of winning). We then sort
through and select the best ones to appear on the site. This is done all the time so if you don't see your
caption within 24 hours it probably didn't get picked. We have to filter the captions as we get literally
thousands of entries and need to make sure nothing unsuitable goes on the site.
How do I win the Caption Contest?
There is no guaranteed way to win the Caption Contest, although being original and funny
will definitely help. Typing insults, profanity or anything completely boring
most definitely will not help you.
These are some captions that will NEVER win again, as we get hundreds of them for every competition:
- I see dead anything
- Where's the cream filling?
- Get ready to rumble
- Credit card parodies (please we have heard the priceless one tooooo much!)
- Any reference to the game Marco Polo
- Any mention of letting the dogs out
- Anything having to do with not being in Kansas anymore
- Dude, where's my ______?
- Houston, we have a problem.
- Any Neopet saying Waaaaaaazzzzzzzuuuuuuppppp!!!!!
How will I know if I have won the Caption Contest?
If you have won the Caption Contest
your username will be displayed in the caption archive. You will also notice a trophy is now shown in your
user lookup (Type your username in the search box at the bottom of the yellow bar to check). As well as the
trophy you will be awarded 5,000 - 10,000 NP and a rare item. The item varies, but it is always something interesting
and hard to get hold of :)
