Time to nominate good and bad communicators.
It’s that time of year again when we’re looking for website pages or documents that left you scratching your head. We want the best and worst documents or webpages you’ve come across for entry into the People’s Choice category of the annual Plain English Awards. The People’s Choice category is sponsored by Consumer NZ.
You can enter a document or webpage from any New Zealand business or government organisation for these awards:
the People’s Choice — Best Plain English Communication award honours the most outstanding example of a really clear and helpful plain English document or webpage
the People’s Choice — Worst ‘Brainstrain’ award goes to the document or webpage most notable for confusing and dumbfounding its target audience with obscurity and gobbledygook.
By nominating entries in either or both categories, you are helping to improve the quality of publicly available information for everyone.
Entries are judged by an independent panel of national and international plain English specialists and advocates. Consumer NZ is happy to be involved.
