The WriteMark New Zealand Plain English Awards Trust needs $5,000 to help stage the eighth annual Plain English Awards. The money will pay for trophies, administration support, and ceremony costs. We'd love it if 100 people could pledge $49.

For $49, you’ll get $730 worth of plain English products and services from our amazing sponsors. You’ll also go in the draw for a grand prize worth $7,980.

What do the Awards do?

The Awards honour outstanding examples of plain English. Public- or private-sector organisations can enter their documents or websites. Anyone can nominate documents for the People's Choice Best Plain English Communication or Worst 'Brainstrain' Communication. Independent, international panels of plain English experts and advocates judge the entries.

Why have the Awards?

The Awards aim to:
  • improve government and business documents so that all New Zealanders can understand them
  • raise public awareness of the need for, and benefits of, plain English
  • and create a public preference for organisations that choose to communicate in plain English.
