If you're looking for the yearly icons, see Participant icon or Winner's icons.

Badges are small icons displayed on a NaNoWriMo Wrimo's profile, as well as the NaNoWriMo dashboard. There are four types of badges: participation badges, writing badges, winner and partricipant badges, and personal achievement badges.

The website badges are not to be confused with NaNoWriMo Merit Badges, an item previously sold in the NaNoWriMo Store.

Winner and Participant Badges

Winner and participant badges show which past years a Wrimo has participated in NaNoWriMo. These badges are displayed on the Wrimo's Author Info. A blue badge indicates participation in the given year, while a purple badges indicates the participant won NaNoWriMo that year.

Wrimos can add these badges to their profile by entering their novel info for that year and marking a win date for years won.

A halo appears over the years that the participant donated to NaNoWriMo. However, halos earned for MLing or forum moderation in previous years do not appear.
