All finalists will be given free show passes and will be invited to the IGF award ceremony at GDC 2016, showcasing their games on the IGF Pavilion at the show.

The IGF Audience Award will be voted via public Web-based poll from the finalists in all categories.

The IGF competition has a diverse set of judges which includes representatives from the mainstream game industry, notable previous IGF winners and finalists, other independent game developers, and indie-friendly game journalists.
