The AFI [Aust Film Institute] awards are partly voted by members - but anyone can pay to join - and partly, for the craft awards, voted by industry professionals. The IF awards [from Inside Film magazine] precede the more significant AFI awards. The IF awards are judged entirely by popular vote - from anyone who takes the trouble to vote.
