The tradition started in 2008: the Dioraphte Award, a prize consisting of €10.000, is conferred upon one of the films supported by IFFR's Hubert Bals Fund and screening at the festival.
In 2008 the winner of the Dioraphte Award was selected by a jury. From 2009 on, the Dioraphte Award goes to the Hubert Bals Fund-supported film receiving the highest votes from the festival audience.
