Drawing from an unparalleled news gathering network of 260 locations across 151 countries, AFP reports in six languages from places that are rarely, if ever, covered by other media. Images, which are increasingly the key element of our news coverage, account for half of the agency’s turnover. A recognized hallmark of AFP journalism is the attention it pays to human interest stories. AFP is also a world leader in digital verification. Heir to the world’s first news agency, Havas, that was established in 1835, AFP aims to become the indispensable agency of choice for the world’s media, not only for the quality of its coverage but also for the service it provides to its clients and the attention it pays to meeting their expectations.
