The IIFA Voting process is a stringent and methodical procedure that is closely monitored by KPMG, the official auditors for the event. Entries are received from all film makers for work done in the calendar year. The entries are placed before the Academy, comprising film industry members, for voting. On the basis of the voting, the winners of the Technical awards are decided. The results are surrounded by secrecy and the credibility of the voting process is one of the key parameters of this prestigious award.
