This year 156 newspaper houses from 30 countries applied for membership of the exclusive International Newspaper Color Quality Club, a joint Ifra/NAA (Newspaper Association of America) initiative supported by the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers Association (PANPA). 50 awards were conferred.   Much coveted in the trade: membership of the International Newspaper Color Quality Club 14 went to newspapers printed on KBA offset, anilox offset and flexo presses in Europe and the USA.
