Competitions and Awards: You can now create IFDB pages for competitions and award events, such as the Annual Comp or the Xyzzy Awards. Each competition page records the basic details of a competition, along with the list of entrants, nominees, winners, placeholders, etc. This new information lets IFDB automatically display the awards a game has won, and offers another way to cross-reference games, and another way to browse the database. Competition pages work like game listings: no one "owns" a comp page, so any member can create and edit a comp page, and each page keeps a history of changes showing who edited it and what they changed. When a game is listed as part of a competition, the game's home page will include the competition in the new "Awards" section.
