Room Design Awards: Meet The Finalists!


Hey guys! It’s me, Michael Webkinz, here to present the finalists for our 9th ever Webkinz Room Design Awards! In the past, we have always had 10 finalists, but for the first time ever I have decided to choose 20 finalists. It’s always hard to narrow it down, so this made it a little easier :)


Players will be able to vote for their favorite design, right here on Webkinz Newz from Friday, April 20th, to Sunday, April 22nd. 4 winners will each be awarded a Room Design Trophy. The winners will be announced on Monday afternoon, April 23rd… Good luck!


Congratulations to all 20 finalists! Here they are (in no particular order):

Now it’s time to vote! Click on the VOTE NOW button to pick your favorite room design. Results will be posted Monday afternoon, April 23rd:


Finalists: you all did a great job and will each be sent a code for a Webkinz Day Loot Bag. I will send you an email this week with the code, so please check the email account you used to send in your designs.


As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, 4 finalists will be awarded a Room Design Trophy. A huge thanks to expert room designer Autumn, who I invited to be a special guest judge for this Room Design Awards!


Here’s how the winners will be chosen:


  • The 1st winner will be decided by a vote right here on Webkinz Newz. On Friday April 20th, players can vote for their favorite design and the winner will be awarded the trophy.
  • The 2nd winner will be chosen by the Webkinz Creative Team
  • The 3rd winner will be chosen by special guest judge Autumn
  • The 4th and final winner will be chosen by me, Michael Webkinz!


Autumn is a previous Room Design Award winner. I also featured one of Autumn’s designs in a special Let’s Build Video. Autumn truly has a great eye and is one of the most talented room designers I have ever featured on Webkinz Newz.

    I don’t care for the idea of having just one webkinz player choosing a winner for this, having a panel of players I think would be better in the future, if you plan on keeping something like that on going. It is difficult enough keeping things non partial as it is. Players are bound to be more involved with the rest of the community at a more personal level, to where they have people like they like or dislike more than others.

    Congratulations to all the finalists for a well-deserved honor. It’s going to be really, really hard to choose because I think you all are winners!

    Arbor is a great designer, but isn’t a bit of a conflict of interest when one of her rooms is a finalist?

    So many rooms to decide on. I finally narrowed it down to four, which was not easy. All of you did a great job!

    I’m not really thrilled with the idea of a Webkinz player being a guest judge. I just don’t like when games do that kind of thing. Great rooms by all though. This will be tough to vote on. There’s a lot of creativity in this batch.

    All of the rooms are A-MAZING but my personal favorites are indoor pool and spring cottage room. They all are so creative and I wish I could think of something like these!!

    Wow I feel so honored being one of the finalists. The idea of the Practice Landing Strip for the Reindeer Calf, came to mind while we were all going to the park daily to help each other teach our new calf how to fly. I thought it fit perfectly to help the calf learn..Practice Practice Practice. I’m always impressed with all of the designs and creativity, but, this is a great bunch of finalists. And I think that it is wonderful that Autumn is being recognized for all of her great designs and will be the guest judge.
