TheBox Contributor Award

The Box was a magazine entirely devoted to the latest gossip, fun and facts of Habbox. Although the first version was only released in early 2014, it developed and evolved into something of grandeur, with a little bit of something for everyone to indulge in.

The Box was inspired by a leaflet that lawrawrrr received through her door which summed up local activity. Through the hearty idea to update Habbox and keep records of monthly happenings like the leaflet, The Box soon grew from 6-some pages into often over an 18 paged wonder.

The Writers

Although the majority of work was done by Laura with the creation and artists touch with her magazine, there were monthly writers there to help her create content.

The recurring monthly writers were Expling, Calum0812 and an Anonymous writer as well past and one-off writers include Samanfa, Inseriousity., Alkaz, Ripieno, Krazybethw, dbgtz, -Nick, !!Troxa!!, Empired, Kardan and The Don.
