Summer Awards 2023: Nominations & Voting

As the end of summer draws near, there is only one important announcement left for us to make. We are thrilled to present the Summer Awards 2023 voting process, wherein you have the opportunity to choose the individuals and events that have shaped the community in the past eight months.

Designed by Beasto

Deja vu? With a little tweaking, Club Penguin Armies is excited to announce (definitely for the first time) the new and improved nominations for the Summer Awards 2023.

Summer in the army community has always been one of the most active and busy times of the year, especially this year with multiple events occurring. The community not only witnessed World War IX taking place but also a historic tournament – Legends Cup XIII, wherein the Army of Club Penguin was crowned the champions. While the summer fever gripped the community, there was an increase in both battles as well as the news. So we can say with certainty, that Summer 2023 lived up to its previous years, as the community was quite preoccupied with all the events going on then.

The following nominations consider the achievements and actions of individuals and armies during the past eight months till the Summer of 2023. That’s right, the past eight months. We felt that splitting the year into halves for the two biggest seasonal awards felt right. And keeping tradition with past awards, why would we rename it? Just like previous votes, we encourage you not to view this as a popularity contest but instead vote based on the events of the last few months.

2023 Summer awards

 Biggest Army

Over the past few months, the community has witnessed numerous changes in armies’ statuses. While some achieved the major army title, others fell down to small/medium. In your view, which of these armies demonstrated exceptional resilience and emerged as a dominant force within the community during this year thus far?


  • Army of Club Penguin
  • Elite Guardians
  • Help Force
  • Rebel Penguin Federation
  • Templars
  • Water Vikings

Best major army leader

The army community would be defunct without the selfless work of the major army leaders. They lead their army through highs and lows, through wars and battles, and have the greatest influence on the success of their army. The best leaders are often those who keep their head the lowest, bearing the most responsibility while ensuring that each member of their staff team can shine out. From this list, consider the leaders who have put in the most work to make their army a success.


  • AustinFraud (ACP)
  • Calgocubs21 (ACP)
  • Coolguy (ACP)
  • Dawnables (TCP)
  • Desireus (HF)
  • Dino (WV)
  • Elexonck (RPF)
  • Fitsuki (EGCP)
  • Link3000 (RPF)
  • Mabel (WV)
  • Moon (TCP)
  • Nicky_3070 (TCP)
  • RammLass (EGCP)
  • Rooboo (HF)
  • Snowy (HF)


Not to be confused with major army leaders, S/M leaders play an equally important part in the community. They keep an eye on the “lower leagues” and are the cornerstone to building any army from the ground up. They understand the struggle of keeping an army afloat better than anyone and are often the hardest-working members of the community. Any thriving major army today has a S/M leader to thank for it.


  • Cabin (NC)
  • Jakob (FG)
  • Legoman (SWAT)
  • Logical (POM)
  • Ninja Leader (DP)
  • Rye (POM)
  • Shallissa (PIC)
  • Sidie9 (PIC)
  • Sweater (SWAT)


An army’s dominance within the community can manifest in diverse ways, starting with high maxes or frequent conflicts. However, such dominance doesn’t always guarantee victory in every battle. The title of “Best Tactical Army” will be awarded to the army that consistently exhibits outstanding performance on the battlefield and rarely loses, even if facing a stronger opponent.


  • Army of Club Penguin
  • Elite Guardians
  • Help Force
  • Rebel Penguin Federation
  • Special Weapons and Tactics
  • Water Vikings

 Best Higher Command

No army would be complete without its higher command. These staff members are the driving force behind the army, bringing their leaders’ visions to completion. They both support their commanders through highs and lows and provide leadership for the lower staff, making their role doubly important. Without these individuals, any army could never survive.


  • AOL (ACP)
  • Chey (WV)
  • Gabi (RPF)
  • Jgxm (EGCP)
  • Kurumi (PIC)
  • Maguro (TCP)
  • Mocha (DV)
  • Ovronnix (SWAT)
  • Thuanthaijo [Jo] (HF)

 Most Achieved

This award is given to the individual in armies who set themselves apart, through their admirable work ethic and often leadership position in armies. They helped shape the community throughout the year, making their presence known and ideas brought into fruition. The most achieved can be considered the backbone of the community for the time they spent active and contributing.


  • Calgocubs21
  • Elexonck
  • Rooboo
  • Spotty

 Biggest retirement

Every good leader wants to go out with a bang. The biggest retirement award is given to the leader who not only made headlines with their retirement but was so vital to their army that their absence makes itself known.


  • Cabin (NC)
  • Coolguy (SWAT)
  • Desireus (HF)
  • Logical (POM)
  • Scorpion Demon (CPA)
  • Xing (TCP)

 Biggest Rise

The Biggest Rise is awarded to the army which managed to not only keep its head afloat but thrive. In today’s environment, with a diminished player base and difficult recruiting, any army that has been able to flourish can be applauded. From tournament winnings to Top Ten rankings, this army has proven to the community they aren’t to be taken lightly.


  • Army of Club Penguin
  • Elite Guardians
  • Napalm Corps
  • Penguins of Madagascar
  • Water Vikings

 Best conflict

The past few months have seen their fair share of conflict. We all know the true purpose of army conflicts, though: entertainment for the community at large. The Best Conflict is not only the one with the most satisfying conclusion but also the one that allows armies to showcase their true strength and that pushes leaders to prove their worth.


  • Army of Club Penguin vs. Elite Guardians
  • Dark Vikings vs. Sapphire Concordat
  • Special Weapons and Tactics vs. Templars
  • World War IX

 Most Controversial Moment

Ah, CPA drama. Where would we be without you? Much happier. It should come as no surprise to anyone that where penguins are, drama follows, and the past months have been no exception. While controversy can often be stressful for those involved, it allows the community to take a step back and consider the whole equation of an issue, determining to avoid these mistakes going forward.


  • Back-to-back overthrowing of Club Penguin Armies’ administrators
  • Dark Vikings banned from future tournament participation
  • Ice Warriors’ scandal
  • Rebel Penguin Federation break their World War IX treaty resulting in total land loss
  • Templar’s multilogging exposed by the administrators

 Best Writer

The Best Writer award is given to the individual who made an extraordinary contribution to reporting, and who sought to give fast, accurate information in the clearest way possible. After all, we rely on reporters to get concise information about army dramas and events.


  • Actionspark
  • Coolguy
  • Ferdthebird1
  • Legoman
  • Mogi4
  • Nicky_3070
  • Ugly
  • Scorpion Demon
  • Shallissa
  • Sidie9
  • Sweater

 Post of the summer

Not only is the Best Reporter highlighted, but also the best post of 2023 so far. This top-quality post is often the most interesting or best-written piece of the summer, providing entertainment as well as information to those who read it.


 Best Graphic Designer

Almost everywhere you look in CPA, a graphic designer has had a hand in it somehow. This can range from post graphics to Club Penguin Army Battleground to even server icons. These people work quickly and tirelessly to make sure that each piece of news is accompanied by an interesting, eye-catching graphic.


  • Dino
  • Koloway
  • Gabgeirl
  • Master DS

 Best Judge

Being a judge can be a difficult job, especially when results are contested and argued over. Judges are some of the most important members of the community, ensuring that battles and tournaments can run smoothly and without any major hiccups. They offer feedback and tips to leaders, helping them to become more experienced battle leaders.


  • Aubz
  • Da Best
  • Jakob
  • Mabel
  • Mads
  • Nicky

Best Moderator

When there’s trouble in the community chat, you know who to call. The moderators of our Discord server are able to navigate tough situations while keeping our Discord server running smoothly. We truly are unsure how we would be able to look after the server with these key individuals.


  • Aubz
  • Mabel
  • Mogi4
  • Rah

Best Top Ten Committee Member

Arguably one of the most important “ninja” jobs on our team. Everyone looks forward to the Top Ten every week on Sundays, and the Top Ten Committee members ability to organize the numbers each week are the reason the Top Ten is able to consistently be released. We call this award the unofficial “Best Counter” award.


  • Alemax4
  • Litt7
  • Mogi4
  • Nicky_3070
  • Princhi

Best Community Committee Member

While reporting on the news in the community is the structure of our foundation, the Community Committee is where we really shine. Thanks to the members on this committee, the Discord server has become a more fun, interactive place to be. Playing army is all fun and games, but Community Committee events is really where the fun happens that can make ever lasting memories.


  • Izzy
  • Jojo Teri
  • Legoman
  • Mare
  • Mogi4
  • Nicky_3070
  • Zooy
  • Zenerisha

Best Youtuber

YouTube editing and recording is an underrated job. These individuals are creating a formal archive of what our community looks like in its current state. We’ll be able to look back on these videos with fond memories. Their role is superbly important to the functioning of Club Penguin Armies.


  • Beasto
  • Cait
  • Da Best
  • Mogi4

Brightest Bulb

Last but certainly not least, the Brightest Bulb is perhaps the most infamous award out of the whole list. This one is given to those who have some quirks that certainly make all of our time in CPA more interesting. It’s hard to see where the community might stand today without the very valuable input from these people.
