Are you an individual or an organisation looking for recognition in one of New Zealand’s leading industry awards? Then get in quick: you only have until the end of Friday this week, 31 August, to submit entries in the 2018 Plain English Awards.
The Awards feature 13 categories, from Best Annual Report, to Best Plain English Legal Document, to Best Plain English Turnaround. And the premier category is for Plain English Champions: the Best Plain English Organisation and the Best Individual or Team.

The benefits of entering an industry award, and perhaps winning, go much deeper than you might first think. Public recognition is one of the most rewarding benefits, of course. But that benefit is just one of many.
What are some of the other benefits of entering the leading industry awards for clear communication?
• Optimal benchmarking: the recipient of an award is seen as setting a standard
• Building credibility and strength: entering and winning an award validates an organisation’s position with prospective customers and clients
• Demonstrating value: winning an award provides clear evidence of the value an organisation brings to its clients
• Communicating that you’re professional: entering and winning an award shows that you’re a reputable professional whose achievements stand out
We’ve been running the Plain English Awards for 13 years. Over this time we’ve seen a steady increase in the quality of the entries. We’ve also seen a steady increase in interest in the Awards. And we’ve witnessed and recorded the benefits that organisations and individuals, as well as sponsors, reap from association with the Awards.
