The IFDB Awards are an annual competition designed to award excellence in creating interactive fiction. They started in 2023 (rating 2022's works).

The IFDB Awards are held from February 1st to the first weekend after February 15th each year (unless that would clash with the XYZZY Awards) on the Interactive Fiction Database, and take the form of polls, with eligible works drawn from those first published in the previous calendar year. Every IFDB member is eligible to vote, except where otherwise noted.

One of the main purposes of these awards is to be community-owned and regular. They need to keep working even if the current organizer doesn't keep working. If Feb 1st passes without the current organizer having created the polls, anyone can create the polls themselves.

The community can propose new changes to awards or new organizers via public discussion. A public yes/no poll on intfiction with more than 50% voting yes can be used to add new organizers. Current organizers can also add in other organizers or successors, subject to a public veto.
