To be in the running all you need to do is share with us (by emailling how your library or school is celebrating the 2012 Inky Awards. You can get creative by vlogging, hosting an Inky party, putting up an Inky display, or absolutely anything else you can think of!

The only condition is that your celebration needs to feature the 2012 Inky Awards, and an image of Inky in some way.

Attached are vector images of Inky – found here and here, which can be altered to fit an A2 print, and our Inky Award badges – gold found here and silver found here.
