2014 Inky Award Winners

More award news with the 2014 Inky Award Winners announced today! See all the shortlisted novels here 2014 Inky Award Shortlist.

It sounded like a fabulous morning down at the State Library of Victoria. All five Australian authors nominated were present, with each author taking the stage to talk about their books, followed by a session talking with the with teen judges and a YA literature pop quiz. The tweets were coming thick and fast with the #InkyAward hashtag trending in Melbourne.

What an awesome effort of the teen judges to read through all of the twenty nominated long listed books! Then the ten shortlisted books were chosen in consultation with the other judges and the voting went online for young adults from 12 – 20 to vote for the winners. I don’t have many teen readers of my blog – wish I had more – but if this sounds like something your son or daughter would be interested in (yes, I’m talking to you Melissa – about Aidan!) then get online, register with Inside a Dog and post your book reviews and next year apply to be a judge. Go on!

Here is a little of the Twitter feed of the 2014 Inky Awards:
