Literary awards & competitions

The Library helps foster Victoria's writing community by administering awards in scriptwriting and youth literature.

We award the R E Ross Trust Playwrights' Script Development Awards annually to help bring scripts with potential to a wider audience.

Each year our Inky Awards celebrate the best in youth literature, with insideadog readers awarding a favourite Australian and international author.

The Victorian Premier's Literary Awards are administered by the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing & Ideas.
