Have you heard about the New Zealand Plain English Awards?
This year’s Awards are focusing on the People’s Choice Awards for best and worst communications, with the full Plain English Awards to be held in 2020.
Nominations are open now, so it’s your chance to have your say. Here are three great reasons to get involved.
You want to share a wonderful example of clear communication with the world
The Awards celebrate the great work happening in so many organisations. If you’ve spotted a praiseworthy example of an organisation that’s delivering its messages with spectacular clarity, let us know!
Winning the award for People’s Choice Best Plain English Communication is a public pat on the back for New Zealand’s clearest communicators. Help them get the recognition they deserve
You want to do something about frustratingly confusing communications
By nominating a communication for the not-so-coveted Brainstrain Award, you’re helping to make a positive difference in the way organisations communicate.
Almost without exception, organisations step up to ‘take it on the chin’ when nominated for the dreaded bin of sour worm lollies. With the public scrutiny they get from winning the Brainstrain, they’re motivated to change.
You want to help improve the lives of everyday Kiwis
The People’s Choice Awards help organisations to keep things real with their communications.
The winner of the Best Plain English Communication award is recognised for getting things right for their audience. And the winner of the dreaded Brainstrain has a powerful incentive to change for the good.
You’ve got until 31 August, so don’t muck about. Send in your nominations now!
