Yes, your teen choice book awards are back, and better than ever with a brand new timeline. The Awards are all about showcasing the best and brightest young adult titles, as deemed by Australia’s teens, so following feedback we’ve revised the awards calendar:
How can you engage with the Inky Awards?
- Encourage students to submit an application for the teen judging panel.
- Review the longlist on InsideaDog.com.au as an armchair judge!
- Promote your students’ choices as for the Inky Awards in the classroom or library.
- Go on a blind date! Cover books in brown paper and provide a snappy elevator pitch.
- Organise a shortlist announcement celebration to coincide with our own.
- Create a piece of art (poetry, craft, photography, a cake, etc) in response to a favourite title from the longlist.
- Join us at the State Library of Victoria for the Inky Awards Ceremony in person or online.
To facilitate these dates, the publication period for books eligible for this year’s Inky Awards has changed from financial to calendar year. This means that all 2013 young adult releases (barring the 2013 longlisted titles) are eligible for the 2014 Gold and Silver Inky Awards.
