Reading #yeahnoir: win personally signed copies of this year's Ngaios winners!

Readers around the world have the opportunity to win personally autographed copies of this year's Ngaio Marsh Award winners, as the "Reading #yeahnoir" competition returns in 2018. 

Are you a fan of crime and thriller writing? Do you regularly dive into tales of mystery and mayhem? Well here's your chance to win personally signed novels from some of New Zealand's best authors. 

It's free to enter: all you need to do is take a picture of yourself reading any New Zealand crime, mystery, thriller, or suspense title - from old classics like Ngaio Marsh, Fergus Hume, Elizabeth Messenger and Laurie Mantell, to the latest from contemporary scribes like Stella Duffy, Finn Bell, Paul Cleave, Fiona Sussman, Paul Thomas, and Vanda Symon. 

To enter the draw, share you picture with the Ngaio Marsh Awards organisers by: 
  • Tweeting the pic - tag @ngaiomarshaward and use hashtags #yeahnoir and #2018Ngaios; OR
  • Posting your pic to the Ngaio Marsh Award Facebook page or your own Facebook page while tagging Ngaio Marsh Awards in the pic; OR
  • Emailing the pic to 
If you follow the Ngaio Marsh Award's twitter account or like the Facebook page, you'll get a bonus entry in the draw.

The prize winner(s) will be drawn following the announcement of this year's Ngaio Marsh Awards winners on Saturday 1 September at the WORD Christchurch Festival. 

The more entries we get, the more prizes and winners there will be. 

Just to clarify: the book in your photo doesn't have to be set in New Zealand, just written by an author strongly connected to New Zealand (citizen, resident, grew up here, etc). If you're scratching your head for choices, here's a long list of more than 800 possibilities.

So grab something from your shelf or hit your local bookstore or library, and get snapping.
