There is no other recognition better than the love of viewers that could add joy and comfort to the hard work an artist puts into his/her/their work. After all, recognition could be as simple as a public acknowledgement.
Let us term recognition with a more popular synonym - award - and there! You found us!
We explore the Internet as our stage, social media as our podiums and everyone is a guest at this virtual show.
So with this 'maybe-unfaithful' introduction, we welcome you to the FOI Online Awards, sometimes referred to as FOIOA.
FOI Online Awards is an annual online poll, researched, organized and voted by a team of film enthusiasts, honouring the artists for their masterpieces. The poll is held yearly during January/February to judge the best amongst the Indian feature films in Hindi & English, released a year before. The jury follows research and successive rounds of voting to elect nominations and winners. Every procedure, including the final announcement, is held "online" only. The jury maintains a regularly updated set of 'Rules & Guidelines' - which serves as the procedural constitution for various eligibility and balloting requirements.
The 1st FOI Online Awards were announced on 14th February 2016 for feature film released in 2015.

FOI Online Awards, India, (at times referred to as FOIOA), is a personal effort by a collective of film enthusiasts, which can be treated equivalent to a blog. The purpose of its proceeding is to simply put forward an opinion; it does not intend to defame or insult an individual or organisation. The effort is purely interest-based and is not designed to gain any monetary advantage from anyone or of any kind.
