Nominations are open now through March 15, 2021.
1. We changed our submission process
We are making it even easier to apply for a ClearMark this year! You may now submit any piece of information (English, Spanish, or French) that includes written and design elements. Don’t worry about which category your work fits into, just send us what you’ve got. Below are lists of communications that you can and can’t submit. Don’t be limited by these because we may have forgotten a few!
2. Our focus is on all North American members
Communications written in French, Spanish and/or English are encouraged. Making the Center for Plain Language truly an organization that recognizes plain language communications created by North American organizations.
3. Receive your award in front of a live – virtual – international audience
We will announce our 2021 Winners at the Access for All Conference May 11-13. Registration for that virtual event will be open soon, and we’ll alert you when it is.
