Inky Award nominations
The Inky Awards recognise high-quality young adult literature – as chosen by teens.
There are two awards: the Gold Inky Award for an Australian book, and the Silver Inky Award for an international book. The awards are named after InsideaDog.com.au's mascot (and wonder-dog), Inky.
Here you can nominate a young adult book for consideration for the 2018 Inky Awards.

- The Inky Awards are for fictional novels, poetry, anthologies and/or graphic novels, and can be a work of joint authorship or editorship.
