The Plain English Awards – sponsored by Mason Hayes & Curran – are a public pat on the back for plain English champions.
This year NALA is encouraging businesses and organisations from different sectors (Financial, Health, Regulatory and Public Sector) to send us documents that they think are outstanding examples of plain English. The deadline is 15 November and you can send your material online.
An independent panel of plain English experts will judge the entries and decide on the best and worst winners in each category.
The winners will get an internationally approved Plain English Mark. The worst will get some free Plain English training.
The awards are organised by the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) to promote the use of plain English in all public information.
