The “Best in Print Asia Awards” is the annual print quality competition organised by WAN-IFRA to recognise newspapers and magazines in Asia who print their publication as per ISO 12647-3 and WAN-IFRA standards. The competition is aimed to showcase the quality of print reproduction while fostering competitiveness in the newspaper printing industry.

The competition has two categories:

  • For newspapers / magazines with less than 100,000 copies and
  • For newspapers / magazines with more than 100,000 copies.

The competition evaluates key technical process parameters, including dot gain at 40% and 70%, mid-tone spread, grey balance, color space in percentage, color conformity, color register, and visual general printing quality (GPQ).





Any Newspaper or magazine publishers or publications who are from Asia and Middle East countries and who exist in print format, are eligible to participate in this print quality contest.
