The homegrown striker has emerged as an important player for Cherries this season in his first year in the professional ranks.
Ings, 18, has defied his lack of experience at senior level to produce a series of impressive performances.
A key player under Lee Bradbury, he has scored seven league goals in 26 appearances this term, 21 of which have come in the starting line-up.
He will do battle for the gong with fellow frontmen Ashley Barnes (Brighton), Neil Mellor (Sheffield Wednesday) and Craig Mackail-Smith (Peterborough United). The winner will be announced tomorrow.
