Inky Awards – Longlist Announced

The longlist for the 2012 Inky Awards for the best teen literature has been announced – the Gold Inky award for Australian releases and the Silver Inky for international novels. From this list, four teen judges and writers James Moloney and Danielle Binks will decide which books will make the cut to a shortlist of five in each category. The winner will be voted in by readers under 20 on Inside A Dog from August 27, and announced on October 24.
