The Daily Feature is one of the most notable awards on Newgrounds. It is given to the best scoring Flash submission submitted over the course of one day.
The Daily Feature award was first given on June 6, 2000, and has been awarded ever since. It is awarded to the submission with the highest score on a given day. If a submission is still under judgement at midnight, it is considered for the award the next day. Along with the runner ups, the winner is then displayed on the Front Page of Newgrounds.
In total, there have been over 3,800 winners, including over 2,800 movies and over 900 games.
Only a small minority of submissions to Newgrounds win the Daily Feature. As of May 30, 2011, over 570,000 submissions have entered the Flash Portal. However, out of these, only less than 200,000 either saved or not eventually deleted. Therefore, about 2% of movies and games on Newgrounds have won the Daily Feature. Although this number is not particularly high, it illustrates that winning a Daily Feature award is not necessarily outstanding, especially since many Daily winners are mostly forgotten shortly afterwards.
