About the KROC Awards
Since 1990, City of Darwin Libraries organises and hosts the annual Kids Reading Oz Choice (KROC) Awards which gives children across the Northern Territory the chance to vote and celebrate their favourite Australian author and favourite Australian book.
By voting in the KROC Awards, children can reward Australian children's books that have most inspired, amused, terrified, enlightened and engaged them.
The KROC Awards encourage reading across all ages and in many genres as well as acknowledging many talented Australian authors.
Children can vote across four categories:
- Picture Story Books
- Fiction for Younger Readers
- Fiction for Older Readers
- Fiction for Years 7 to 9
- The 2022 KROC Awards Winners
