IFC Awards 2021: Results


The 2021 IFC Awards - Results

Thank you to everyone for participating in the 2021 IFC Awards. It was a great turnout, and we are excited to reveal the winners of each category for this year’s awards. As per the norm, there will probably be some controversy, so please refrain from stirring up arguments and the such in the replies below.

But first, some special shoutouts…

To @lucaviness, @Pingu, @Drummer, and @LordWizrak for their assistance in making these awards possible, as well as @sqeezelemon for assisting in creating some amazing graphics (they didn’t make it into these awards, but they’ll look great for next year!).

And, some awards that I have given on behalf of myself and myself only.

Worst Pilot: @RTG113 - somehow, I believe that the worst pilot is a better pilot than the best pilot
Most Upside Down Aussie: @Adam - vegemight regret giving you this award
Canadian Spirit Award: @Evan - maple syrup shortage, no problem
Most Musical Musician: @Drummer - hey look you won something
Most Athletic Runner: @Robertine - nothing sandy about this award
Best Ramper/Luggage Thrower: @ToasterStroodie - throwing bags in the Potomac with ease
Is He Still Alive? Award: @Luke_M - crickets
Fastest Swimmer: @Rhys_V - still jealous
Most Cultured in Food: @LordWizrak - no explanation needed
Best Fake Pilot: @DeerCrusher
Worst Attempt at Trying to be Funny by Making Fake Awards: @Thunderbolt

And now, the awards that actually mean something…

The votes are final and cannot be altered in any way, shape, or form. Since these votes were multiple choice, there was no human counting of votes, and therefore, do not ask us for a recount. The winner is listed next to the name of the category, with the runner-up or second place vote-getter listed in parentheses.

Why am I not there for worst pilot… :(

Thanks for the results!


You don’t fly on infinite flight for more than 30 minutes at a time


@Asher remember that without me, you’re nothing ❤️


Worse than Rocco? Impossible. You know the runway dip at Leeds Bradford? Who do you think made it?

On a more serious note, congrats to all who were chosen! 2021 was a great year, and I’m looking forwards to the future of the community. 🥂


Congrats to all the winners!

Nah without ur “ability” to get a gf I’m nothing 💀


You act like that ability was there to begin with

Me when I don’t get worst pilot

Thanks for making this and thanks to everyone who voted for me! Top 1 and Top 2, that’s great, support is much appreciated! 🙌🏼

I feel like this thread needs a little Frank’s Red Hot, so I’m going to go ahead and point out something…

The artist category was meant to be someone who designed liveries or drew stuff…and I’m not sure if Dan has ever done either of those activities before…? I dunno, just found that a bit weird when going through votes.
