The Inky Awards


The Inky Awards recognise high-quality young adult literature, with the longlist and shortlist selected by young adults, and the winners voted for online by the teen readers.

 There are two awards: the Gold Inky Award for an Australian book, and the Silver Inky Award for an international book.

The Awards are named after me, Inky – the Inside a Dog mascot and all-round wonder-dog – you can find out more about Inky, the Inky Awards and books for young readers via
