De Inktaap – The Inkmonkey (Netherlands)

De Inktaap is a Dutch reading promotion project for 15-18 year olds and it is also the name of the award. The students read the three books which were awarded the three major Dutch literary awards. The students participate with their schools and form juries. They discuss and debate about the books and choose which title deserves De Inktaap. The project ends with a festive day on which literary talk shows and ‘meet and greets’ with authors take place. The accumulated votes of all juries lead to one De Inktaap-laureate.

This project is run by Stichting Lezen and Passionate Bulkboek.
