The festival is split into two broad categories: the IGF Competition among independent games and also a Student Showcase highlighting student-made games. For 2004, the IGF Competion was split into two categories for web browser-based or games whose download is less than 15 megabytes and another for all other games. Each category gives out these six awards: Seumas McNally Grand Prize, Technical Excellence, Innovation In Visual Art, Innovation In Audio, Innovation In Game Design, Audience Award.
