Good Furry Award
The Good Furry Award is an annual prize given to furries who represent the spirit of the fandom. Debuting in 2019, it is administered by Grubbs Grizzly on the Ask Papabear website. Nominations are received by furries and then a selection of the best nominations are put up to a vote. The winner receives a cash prize and a crystal trophy; three honorable mentions also receive trophies. Anyone in the furry community is eligible for the prize without regard to age, sex, gender, race, religion, or nationality, with the exception of the administrator and anyone else who might assist the administrator.
The winner of the first award was Tony Barrett (Dogbomb), who won posthumously (the prize was sent to his brother and the money was donated to the ALS Foundation in his name), and honorable mentions were Aleshka Alejandra, Noelle White (Wyld), and Matt VanNest (Ryvis).
The winner of the second annual award is Ash Coyote, who won for her series of YouTube videos "Ask Ash" that promote and inform about the furry fandom. Honorable mentions went to Aleshka Alejandra, who is the first repeat winner, Hunter Fusky and Courtney "Nuka" Plante.
Nominations for the 2021 award will open in January 2021.
