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 of the Inside a Dog website. There are two awards: the Gold Inky Award for an Australian young adult title, and the Silver Inky Award for an international (non-Australian) young adult title.
The Awards are named after Inky – the Inside a Dog mascot and all-round wonder-dog.
The Inky Awards were founded by the Centre for Youth Literature at the State Library Victoria in 2007 as Australia’s first national teen choice awards for young adult literature.
Vote Now, for the 2019 Inky Award winner – voting is open to all teenagers between the ages of 12 and 19.
All the books on Inky Awards Gold and Silver Award Shortlists are available in the library!
