Know a keen teen reader? We’re looking for Inky Award Judges


I have this post-it note beside my computer, because it’s something I can never be reminded of enough. Teens are smart. Teens are discerning. And a lot of them love books.

The Inky Awards are all about celebrating the best of new young adult releases – and facilitating the teen voice in what makes a great book for teens.

If you know an enthusiastic teen reader, we want to hear from them. Teens aged under 20 can now apply to be a 2013 Inky Award judge. The successful applicants will receive the twenty longlisted books (titles announced 1 June), but in return they have the (un)enviable task of selecting just ten of those books for the shortlist.

Applications to be a teen Inkys Judge close 30 April.

    Sorry, but “teens aged under 20” made me smile 🙂

      Pretty sure I’m a teen trapped in an over-20 body 😉
