Established in July/2010, the  Inkygirl Golden Cupcake Award is given to blogs or sites I find particularly inspirational to children's book writers and illustrators, especially those that may not already be well-known. Criteria is unapologetically subjective.

(August 12, 2013 update: This award used to be for writers in general, but I've decided to narrow the focus to children's book writers and illustrators.)

If you win the award, you do NOT have to display or acknowledge the award (but feel free, if so inclined). Just bask in the ephemeral, golden glory of online blog stardom and then move on, continuing to be an inspiration to the writing community.

And THANK YOU for doing what you do.

Here is a list of recent winners of the Inkygirl Golden Cupcake Award.
