Do you love reading romance?

Romance Writers of Australia is always on look out for readers to be judges for our two annual reader-judged competitions – the prestigious Ruby (Romantic Book of the Year) award for our published authors, and the Emerald for our unpublished talent.

Reader-judges need to be willing and able to judge digital (PDF, epub and/or mobi formats) entries of novels/novellas that can be downloaded onto e-readers or computers for judging. We’ll provide instructions and score sheets on each novel/novella and our competition managers will collect them at the end.

Sounds good?

Express your interest to either contest coordinator Erica Hayes at contests@romanceaustralia.com, or judge coordinator Claire Boston at reader-judge-coordinator@romanceaustralia.com).
