Home > About epa
Since its start in 1985 the european pressphoto agency has always been based on integrity, independence and responsibility.
Today's epa news photo 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's images reflect a continual commitment to allocate a maximum of resources to creative, unique photography producing images that speak for themselves.
The international photo service of epa is used by diverse media as well as epa's partners and shareholders worldwide. The service is managed from epa's editorial headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, with regional editorial desks in Bangkok, Cairo, Madrid, Tokyo and Washington, DC. From there, a timely selection of competitive images is delivered to clients all over the globe.
The recently launched epa video service perfectly complements its news photo service, as it comprises all classical news categories ranging from breaking news, politics, economy and finance, through to sports and entertainment. The around the clock video service is offered in partnership with epa’s majority shareholder EFE. Up to 40 video clips per day are available as 'straps' or raw footage are also available via my-picturemaxx.
