I am barking excited to announce the Inky Awards shortlist for 2016!

Congratulations to all the shortlisted authors!

An enormous thank you is extended to the seven teens from across Australia who served as this year’s incredible judging panel – Ben, Brynnie, Cassie, Chloe, Jack, Meleika and Tom. You’ve selected a fantastic shortlist to celebrate the tenth year of the Inky Awards!

And now it’s your turn to be the judge – you choose which books will be this year’s winners!

Vote now for your favourite book!

Vote for your favourite title, and you could win all 20 books on the 2016 Inky Awards longlist!*

The book with the most votes in each category (Gold or Silver) will win the 2016 award. Voting closes on Sunday, 18 September at 5pm (AEST).

Use the hashtag #InkyAwards to join the celebrations, and to barrack for the Inky Awards books you think are the best.

The victors will be announced at the State Library Victoria on 4 October. Book here.

Terms and Conditions*

The prize will be randomly drawn at the State Library Victoria on 19 September 2016. 

The winner will be notified by email. If, despite reasonable efforts by the Library, a potential prize winner does not respond to the Library within 21 days of the date of notification, the prize(s) will be forfeited and the Library reserves the right to select a new winner.

If the winner is unable to be contacted due to provision of incorrect details, the Library reserves the right to select a new winner.

At the discretion of the Library the winner’s name may also be published via a range of Library publications, which includes, but is not limited to: the Library website, social media channels, print or online magazines and enewsletters.


The prize is not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be taken as cash.

There is one prize only.

I'm too old to vote so I'll just leave my choices here: Gold Inky to "Illuminae" (or Sister heart) and Silver Inky to "Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda". Make it so!
