Here at Plain Language Awards HQ the only thing we love more than all things clear and simple is hearing from you!
So, tell us your plain language story. Upload a short video to our website, solo or grab some friends, and have fun — anything goes! (Well, almost!)
Keep reading for more information. Or jump straight in…
Have you created a seriously simple document, and want to share your journey? Or do you have a passion for plain language, and want to share the love? Maybe you’re entering the Awards this year, and want to show off your efforts. Or perhaps plain language has had a positive impact on you somehow.
We love hearing your stories, whether you’re bragging about your awesomeness or sharing what drives you. So, whatever your reason for sharing, we want to hear from you.
Why did you choose to work through a plain language lens?
And did it create positive results?
Maybe some surprising ones?
What did you enjoy?
What obstacles did you face?
How did you overcome them?
We’re all in this together, so let’s celebrate each other’s wins, commiserate the fails, and help each other along the way.
Not entering the Plain Language Awards this year? No worries! You can still enter a story video.
Camera shy? Don’t love technology? We’ve got you covered. How about a slide show with a voiceover? Or just shooting it on your phone? Head to our website for some more sage advice and a great how-to video by Jonny.
We truly believe in the power of words for good, and love that you have chosen to join us. So thank you for putting yourself out there, for sharing your story, and for raising the bar for clear communications. We can’t wait to hear your story!
