The Plain English Awards are a public pat on the back for plain English champions and help to raise the bar for clear communication.
The 2016 Plain English Awards featured just the People’s Choice awards — Best Communication and Worst ‘Brainstrain’ Communication.
This year, Write Limited, our founding sponsor and Awards administrator, was very busy organising the international Clarity2016 conference in November. The People’s Choice awards were presented at the gala dinner at the close of the conference on 5 November.
