2020 Inky Awards News

Okay everyone, listen up! BREAKING NEWS! BIG NEWS! So big it requires Buffy gifs!

State Library Victoria is making changes to programming across the whole library, to make it even better and available to more people.

All the Library’s programs are being reviewed – children’s, YA, adult and schools programming – the lot! Some programs will stay the same, some will change, some will stop, and some will be brand new programs launching over the next 12–18 months.

As part of this review, the Inky Awards won’t run in 2020 – instead the State Library will be looking for a way these much-loved awards can have a truly national platform that will reach more teens across Australia.

It’s been 13 fantastic years of the Inkys so far, involving more than 100 wonderful teen judges and a host of amazing Australian and international authors.

Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of it – watch this space to find out what’s next for Inky!




That's quite sad news but it's exciting to see what comes next!

It's so sad that it's not happening this year but I'm excited for the 2021 Inky Awards!

This is so sad... But on the bright side, hopefully Inky Awards 2021 will be able to reach more Aussie teens!

This is so disappointing. I'm sure the 2021 Inky Awards will be the best yet! I can't wait to apply :)
