Ministry for Women Annual Report 2016/17

Judges’ comments

I’d use this as an example of a very good start to plain writing and information design. You successfully report technical details while keeping the reader’s attention.

The stand-out feature of this annual report is its use of KPIs or performance measures against stated organisational objectives. It is clear to see as a result of this report where the extra policy focus needs to go to support women and girls in New Zealand reach their potential.
