About epa: epa was founded by seven major Western European photo agencies and officially started on January 1, 1985.

In 2003, epa took a second step forward and went global. Today's epa picture service is based both on the broad network of epa's staff photographers all over the world and on the daily production of its member agencies, which are all market leaders in their respective countries. epa photos have been awarded prestigious prizes in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa.
