On Friday 10 December we will be celebrating Plain English Day from Manchester. We will be shredding examples of jargon and gobbledygook to commemorate the start of the campaign 31 years ago, and inviting members of the public to use our 'Jargon - I can't stick it' stickers to make sure that any jargon or gobbledygook they receive is returned to the sender with a request for plain English.
We will also be holding our 30th Annual Award ceremony to recognise the good examples of clear communications and expose the winning examples nominated by members of the public for our dreaded Golden Bulls.
We will reveal the winner of this year's infamous 'Foot in Mouth' award, given for a baffling comment from a well-known person, and our 'Kick-in-the-pants' award for an organisation that needs to get their act together to improve their communications.
The Plain English Campaign Annual Awards 2010 will be held in Manchester.
