It's nice to be noticed!

The team at East are a little bit tickled to have this website nominated for the People’s Choice Best Communication award in the annual WriteMark New Zealand Plain English Awards.

The Plain English Awards are a public pat on the back for clear communicators and help raise the bar for good business writing. The awards aim to improve government and business documents so that everyone 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. 

Organisations and members of the public submit documents and websites they think are outstanding examples of plain English. The nominator said that had a clear description of our services and they liked its overall look, saying it is attractive and easy to navigate. They also commented on the practical advice offered - for free! 

At East Marketing Communications we have a passion for the written word and simple clear communication – how lovely that someone noticed! The awards also illustrate the importance of well written documents and communication to all businesses, and our nomination shows we are well placed to help our clients with this. 

The website will be judged by an independent panel of New Zealand and international plain English experts and advocates. We’ll find out if we are finalists at the start of November, with the winners announced in Wellington on 27 November.
