World Printers Forum, the print community of WAN-IFRA, announces a new contest ‘Print Innovation Awards’ that will recognise innovations in newspapers and magazines and the winners will be presented on the first exhibition day of the IFRA World Publishing Expo on October 9, 2018 in Berlin. Innovations in the publishing industry are not confined to the digital sector, they are also to be found in print. The ‘Print Innovation Awards’ competition honours the most highly innovative print ads as well print products worldwide and is open to newspaper and magazine publishers as well as advertisers or advertising agencies.
The presentation of the new Print Innovation Awards is not the only award ceremony on the first exhibition day of the IFRA World Publishing Expo in Berlin. On this occasion, the new members of the International Color Quality Club (ICQC) and Star Club will also meet. The worldwide printing quality competition for newspapers and magazines will honour its successful competitors at the Expo. The International Color Quality Club competition, that is held every two years, is the only worldwide colour printing quality competition for newspapers and magazines. It is based on objective measurements and the judgement of international industry experts. ISO printing standards serve as the benchmark for the evaluation. The aim of the competition is to improve the quality of production and printing, while also increasing competitiveness, as well as training and motivating all personnel.
