Inky Awards: Voting Now Open!

Posted: August 31, 2012 in Events

We have some great news for book lovers this week: it has come to our attention that the Inky Awards, hosted by our favourite YA book blog Inside A Dog, are upon us again!  The Inkys are international awards for young adult literature with an importance difference: winners are voted by young people themselves.  This makes the Inky Awards a great indication of what books are actually popular with the youth audience, rather than what adults would like teenagers to be reading.

There are two categories in the Inky awards: the Gold Inky for a book by an Australian author, and the Silver Inky for a book by an international author.  You can look at the short list and vote for your favourites right now!  Not only does voting give you the opportunity to have your say in a small piece of YA literary history, but when you vote you can go into the running to win a prize pack with copies of all ten shortlisted books.  So get voting now!  (For extra glory, leave us a comment and tell us which books you voted for!)
