We went to Washington and all we got was….. this exciting award!

Our ClearMark Award

Our ClearMark Award

This is probably one of the most exciting parts of our Executive Director Joh Kirby’s trip to Washington, apart from a tour of the White House of course!

Our Law help guide 2012 received an award of distinction in the ClearMark Awards Legal category – the only publication by a non-American organisation to receive an award this year.

The ClearMark Awards are given to the best plain language documents and web sites. They are judged by a panel of international experts, following a strict set of criteria.

Revised documents, like the Law help guide, were judged on not just the quality of the final document, but also the quality of improvement from previous versions.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the process we use for improving subsequent editions of our publications, make sure you subscribe to this blog as coming up our Publications Manager Peter Davies will tell you all about this process using the Law help guide as a case study.
