Judging the Plain English Awards

It was an honour to be invited to be a judge for the 2015 Plain English Awards. I was one of a panel of three judges for the sections of Best Annual Report and Best Technical Communicator.

There were so many excellent entries that it was a tough job to decide which were best. Each of us considered all the entries separately, then we discussed them and made the decisions together. I was impressed by the innovative way that many writers presented their ideas and the winners for both categories were outstanding: 

Meredith Evans, Synlait Milk

Winner: Best Plain English Technical Communicator

Mercer, 2015 Mercer KiwiSaver Scheme Annual Report

Winner: Best Plain English Annual Report


In November the Awards ceremony was held in Wellington and people came from all over the country to congratulate the winners. You can read more about the Awards at plainenglishawards.org.nz.
