A big driver of the Plain English Awards is to improve the quality of communications created for everyday New Zealanders.
We want you, as a member of the New Zealand public, to be able to understand everything that’s communicated to you. Because it’s your right to understand!
Another organisation pushing for clear communications is WriteMark. The WriteMark is a quality mark awarded to documents or websites that achieve a high standard of plain language.
When your document holds the WriteMark, your readers can be sure that your writing meets a very high standard of clarity. The WriteMark is an internationally recognised quality mark developed in New Zealand.
