IFC Awards 2022: Nomination Round

Welcome to the 2022 IFC Awards!

Well folks, it’s that time of year again. For the third year in a row, it is my pleasure to host the IFC Awards, the community’s yearly showcase of outstanding people and organizations, as well as different works that have stood out during the calendar year.

Though not as significant as last year, minor changes have been implemented to this year’s awards, particularly the deletion of certain categories to streamline the voting process. The same two-round voting system that was used last year will be used this year.


Prior to 2021, voting would occur in a single write-in round, with two to four forms and a winner being determined from this single round. However, this system has been replaced with a two-round voting system, with the intent of maximizing vote totals and preventing ties.

In the nomination round, you will have the opportunity to submit any applicable nominee into the respective category. From here, the top choices from each category will be placed onto a final vote, which will commence seven days prior to the end of the voting period. A second vote will be opened, where you will only be able to choose from the nominees listed on the final vote. From there, the highest vote getters will be recognized as the IFC Awards winners on a topic to be posted on January 1st, 2023.

Important Rules and Reminders

  • An IFC account is required to participate in voting. Users may be checked to determine legitimacy.
  • The Google Form used in the Nomination Round may only be filled out once. Once responses are submitted, they cannot be altered in any way. Duplicate votes, including the use of VA accounts, may result in the nullification of all votes related to the user in question.
  • As has been the case in previous IFC awards, all categories are 100% optional. This means that as many categories can be voted upon as the user wishes. However, once responses are submitted in the nomination round, they cannot be altered in any way.
  • In typing usernames, please type the full IFC username of the person you wish to nominate. No exceptions will be made to this policy, and any votes with usernames that cannot be traced down will be discarded.
  • The same policy applies for topic links. Please type in either the full name of the topic or provide a direct link to the topic you wish to nominate.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the thread.

Just kidding. (Even though I think we all know who that award is going to.) Looks like an awesome thread! Look forward to seeing the results :)


Schyllberg is my nomination
Partly as a joke because he’s such a Lovable guy


@BennyBoy_Alpha you’re probably top 3 most active here. I don’t know how you do it 😂. This is going to be really interesting.

I have stepped it up recently give I have more spare time but up to September I wasn’t that active - so I doubt I’m even in the top 100…

Friendly Reminder #1:

If you do not have a nomination for a particular category, please leave the answer field on the form blank. This makes my life (and yours) a lot easier.
