The Neopies have been presented by Ellsworth since 2010.

The Neopies is an annual awards ceremony held in January to celebrate the best of the last year. The ceremony was first hosted in 2009. Every day while the ceremony is in progress, four nominees are selected for a Neopies award category (e.g. Best Villain or Best News Days). Users (referred to as attendees) can then vote on which of four nominees they would like to win the award, and are given prizes of their own for taking the time to vote.

Since 2010, the ceremony has been hosted by a Blue Elephante called Ellsworth. The Neopies themselves are gold statuettes in the form of a Faerie. The name Neopies is a play on real-life award shows such as the Grammies or the Emmies.
