NAAPSA and the ICC are separate entities. The ICC has an affiliation with NAAPSA, in that we use their rulebook. As far as whether or not there will be a Paintfest this year, I've heard nothing about it. In the past, the winners of the NAAPSA qualifiers have received entry to the NAAPSA Nationals, NAAPSA's version of World Cup. In 2000, the NAAPSA Nationals were held in conjunction with Paintfest, a USPL production.
Your best bet is to try and contact somebody from NAAPSA. NAAPSA's web site is www.naapsa.com.
