Panpa Bulletin : July 2006
10 | PANPA BULLETIN July 2006 NEWS the conference title may have been a mouthful (59th World newspaper Congress, 13th World editors’ forum and Info Services expo), but participants were treated to case studies on the immense wave of innovation that continues to sweep through the global newspaper industry. Wan’s chief executive, timothy Balding, gave a very upbeat picture of trends. russian press freedom was also on the menu. Mikhail Gorbachev believes that “Putin sometimes, or even frequently, applies authoritarian methods, but this is not authoritarianism.” 59th World Newspaper Congress in Moscow Above, Chris Pash (right) Factiva publisher relations director – Asia-Pacifc meets with founding director of NPECC-KYPbEP, Mr Dmitry Kruchinin (centre) whose company publishes more than 80 monthly magazines in the Czech Republic, with a combined circulation of more than 6 million copies. A translator from the Russian Guild of Press Publishers (sponsors of the WAN conference) explains the details. They are looking over a 120,000 monthly set-circulation magazine for prison inmates. Another example that there is market for everything! Frank Kelett Newspapers have great envi- ronmental credentials, but few are recognised even within the in- dustry so the Publishers National Environment Bureau (PNEB) is sponsoring a PANPA award for Environment, Health or Safety. The PNEB members are the major Australian newspaper and magazine publishers and the bureau works to promote and support the recycling of newspa- pers and magazines. The support of the publishing industry has helped Australia to world leader- ship in the recycling of newspa- pers, with 75.4 per cent of news- print used in Australia in 2005 having been recycled. "This award is to encourage newspaper publishers to dem- onstrate how innovative and en- terprising they have been in en- vironment, health, or safety," said PNEB executive director, Frank Kelett. "We want PANPA members to identify an environmental, health or safety issue and how it impact- ed their business and what action initiatives they took to address the issue." The innovation must improve on previous efforts in this area and must have been implement- ed rather than be an idea or plan. Entrants must explain in up to 500 words the initiative, with il- lustrations or diagrams and tes- timonials from relevant authori- ties. The project or program must have been implemented between May 31, 2005 and June 30, 2006. Full entry details have been sent to all PANPA members. Rewarding environmental innovation In Moscow at the Olympic Stadium, PANPA CEO Michael Richards (left) and World Association of Newspapers (WAN) CEO Timothy Balding discuss how WAN and PANPA can work more closely together.
