The Plain English Awards are a public pat on the back for plain English champions and help to raise the bar for clear communication.
Entries for this year’s Plain English Awards are now closed.
You can submit nominations for the People’s Choice category for 2018 if you missed out this year.
Please get in touch if you can offer support as a sponsor. We rely on sponsorship to manage and promote the Awards and to run the presentation ceremony. Let’s all get behind the Awards to make them happen again this year!
The $125 entry fee covers basic administration costs.
We’re looking forward to receiving your entries. And thanks for supporting clear communication in New Zealand!
