There’s no other award in Australia that reflects what teenagers want to read, rather than what we tell them to read. The Inkys are international awards for teenage literature, voted for online by the readers of insideadog.com.au. There are three awards: the Golden Inky for an Australian book; the Silver Inky for an international book, and the Creative Reading Prize, won by a young person for a creative response to a book they love, in any format they choose.
Join us for the launch of the 2009 Inkys and the announcement of the longlist. Featuring special guests, including authors and some of our teenage judges.
