EFE and epa build on their robust, reliable network of visual journalists operating across the world, enabling them to produce video and enhancing this network with the addition of videographers dedicated to the production of news footage.

"In this day and age it's essential for journalists to be trained in multimedia formats to keep up with the demands of a fast paced and changeable news landscape," said EFE's President Gabriela Cañas, "This joint EFE / epa venture manages to harness the strength and expertise of both agencies to produce a service that is diverse, engaging and informative."
