The News-Item wins print quality award
HERSHEY - The News-Item has won first place in the under 25,000 circulation division for the America East 2013 Print Quality Contest.
Judging involves the print quality of newspapers in six different areas, including black ink laydown, color ink laydown, color registration, halftone (photo reproduction) quality, page alignment and overall print alignment and appearance. Beyond the printing itself, the quality of layout and design are part of the judging process.
First through third-place winners in the under 25,000 division, as well as the 25,000 to 50,000 and 50,000 to 100,000 divisions, included newspapers from Maryland, Massachusetts, Florida and Virginia, among others from Pennsylvania.
The News-Item and other winners are in the running for a best of show award, to be announced April 10 at the America East Technology and Operations Conference, an annual media industry trade show held at the Hershey Convention Center.
