Once again Booktopia are running their annual search to discover Australia’s favourite novelists and they want your input! Below are the guidelines for the competition as seen on Booktopia’s blog.
HOW IT WORKS
WEEK ONE – JAN 1-5 – Let us know your nominations for your favourite Australian novelists. As many as you like, anyone who you think deserves recognition. If you are lucky enough to have a friend who is a writer who you believe in, champion them! You can do this through….

WEEK TWO – JAN 6-12 – The Heats! We’ll take all your nominations and split them up into groups you can vote on. Every day from Monday to Friday a new list will appear with new names. This will decide who makes the final cut! With so many names, just a few votes could take your favourite from yesterday’s news to immortality.
WEEK THREE – JAN 13-19 – Only the best of the best will make it through to the final poll. We’ll have this poll up all week. This will be the final chance to cheer for your favourite Australian Novelist.
WEEK FOUR – A WEEK OF AUSTRALIAN STORY-TELLERS – Voting will close on Monday the 20th of January at 9am. From Monday we’ll count up the top 50 and announce them in order, unveiling 10 every day, and then…..
Australia’s 10 favourite novelists will be announced on Friday the 24th of January. We’ll be profiling all of the top 10 authors and the books that have made them your favourites. It’s a online festival of Australian writing!
There’s only one day left to send in your nominations (as many as you like) via the three methods of voting so make sure you make your voice count! You never know your favourite Aussie author might just be crowned Australia’s Favourite Novelist thanks in part to your vote 🙂
