Readers 'Voices - The Young Readers' Prize (own spelling: LESERstimmen ) is a literary prize organized by the Austrian Library Association and the largest children's and youth book festival in Austria.

The award is sponsored by the Austrian Federal Chancellery . The aim of the campaign is to promote reading in the libraries as well as to promote Austrian authors, the Austrian publishing industry and the book trade. First, a shortlist is determined by an advisory board . As a result, the authors and illustrators of the nominated books take a reading tour to various locations in Austria. The winner of the prize endowed with 5000 euros will then be determined through a public vote with a voting card, which is linked to a competition for the participants in the vote.
