Who needs a premier to run literary awards? A group of volunteers led by Queensland authors Matthew Condon and Krissy Kneen, and supported by Avid Reader bookstore, have established the Queensland Literary Awards. 

The awards are now open for nominations in the same 14 categories as the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards, including children’s and Young Adult, and close 6 May 2012. This year’s awards will have no prize money attached but the group considers it important to continue to recognise great literature and hopes that the awards may be re-established.
