The Good Egg Award This prize is for furries who do charitable and other volunteer work, such as helping out at furcons, raising money for animal charities, or doing work in their non-furry communities.
Joe "Bear" Goria:For his outstanding charitable work, contributions and being a positive influence in the furry community.
Mango Peach:"Mango is one of the most kind and caring souls. He will go out of his way to make sure you have a good and healthy life filled with happiness. He has just moved back with his family and already helped with church and community volunteer work. He has volunteered to help place tombstones in the local cemetery and helped with the Light the World project. As for his friends, he’ll always be there for them in thick and thin. If you’re having a horrible day, he’ll put your happiness above his own. He just started streaming on Twitch and already has a huge following of people who love him and care for him. He’s been nominated for this award multiple times, and I’ll keep nominating until he wins. He’s currently trying to find a job so he can help out more in his community, and he’s volunteering at his brother’s live theatre."
Manick: "Manick has gone out far and beyond year after year helping with WPAFW [Western PA Furry Weekend], running the yinz furs [a furmeet] and helping with the Pittsburgh bowl. He is now the chair cat of WPAFW, and without his leadership, there woudn't be a WPAFW. Each year, they try to raise money to help an organization. Last year was Paws Across Pittsburgh. WPAFW has been going strong since 2010ish to current. It started out of the garage in someone’s house, then expanded to what it is today."
Onix:Onix has been a very active and loud member of the community for over a decade!! From running and organizing all of the events and parades for her local furry groups to staffing for multiple big conventions across Canada, she’s dedicated a big part of her life to the fandom and her community. This year she’s done something extraordinary, bringing attention to an unfortunate cause. She’s taken over the annual charity walk for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada after the event was cancelled in the nearby city! This cause is sadly a very close one to her as she suffered a great loss due to it earlier in the year. This event means so much to her and she’s organized it, planned and fundraised for it all on her own! As well as this she’s been a part of Extra Life and fundraising for them for 8 years!! All in all, I think Onix has done some extraordinary work for charity and deserves the title of Good Egg :)
Shutter: Shutter dedicates his recreational life to finding/promoting/volunteering for events. He's a photographer who selflessly gives his time to capturing memories for countless events and then uploads them, for free, online with proper credits/tags for the furs. He runs Ohio Fur Events chat and constantly seeks out new entertainment for his Ohio fur friends. He promotes a safe space and attitude of inclusion to all under his sphere of influence. Shutter has fallen victim to bad circumstances and never lashed out. He's never asked anything of the fandom. He has legitimate talent. Please consider Shutter as a good furry.
Toronto: This furry has put an immense effort into building up the Cardiff furry scene over the last couple of years, putting so much time, effort, and a ton of his own money into developing one of the UK's premier furmeets! It has grown from just six furries meeting in a dusty pub during the pandemic to over 150 attendees in a bangin' city centre bar with live DJ, fursuit games, parade, video game tournaments, and so much more! The furmeets are a welcoming safe space for a lot of folk who otherwise would have nobody to socialize with, and attract attendees from across the UK, and even mainland Europe! Most folks don't realize how much work goes on behind the scenes, and I feel he deserves a little recognition for that!
The Image Award This prize goes to furries who present a positive image of the fandom through the media, including YouTube videos, documentaries, vlogs, podcasts, websites and other similar means of communication.
BetaEtaDelota: "I’ve been following this awesome fur for a few years now, and I think his in-depth analysis and explanations of the furry community, including dissecting the anti-fur arguments that arise, are endearing and educational to all new furs and existential ones! Regardless of your sona or species, he’s delved into many different things, ranging from what it is to be a furry to fur icons and suit makers to furry convention experiences! I’ve never felt more informed and well-off about embracing my fursona and identity and wanting to explore it more with hope I’ll be welcomed than when I listened to his videos and started reaching out to other furries!"
Jib Kodi: Jib is the most amazing furry who made so many furs laugh and cry with his animations. His drawings seem to be really alive. His animations are sometimes weighing in on social issues, too, which is very memorable when done with cute animals. He also often donates animations to charity auctions and never gets involved with drama.
The Furtastic Award This prize is basically for furries doing good works that don't easily fall into the first two categories. It could also apply to a furry who you believe is just an all-around wonderful, lovely person, even if they might not do charity work or do something in the media.
The Royal Rebellion: "They’re a lifeguard at the place I interned at. They’re hardworking and positive. They’ve told me stories of their time working the very last years of Raging Waters before they shut down, gotta say, they’re truly a hero, I don’t think I’ve the guts to work in a fast paced environment like that without fail. I know it’s an easy job to get, but in reality, it’s almost tue same as being an EMT… saving lives."
