dpa expands photo network around Latin America – and expands Spanish-language photography services

Article ID:


13.01.2017 – The German Press Agency dpa has expanded its independent photo network significantly. Through contracts with various photo agencies, dpa customers can now be supplied with pictures from all over Latin America - from Mexico to Tierra del Fuego. At the same time, the Spanish-language photo service, which is aimed specifically at the customers of the Spanish dpa service, has been reinforced and staffed.

Among the new partners are Mexico's large agency Notimex, Télam in Argentina, AgenciaUno from Chile and Agência Brasil. Altogether about a dozen agencies from all over Latin America are present.
“Whether Carnival or government crisis, football or natural disaster, folklore or aircraft accident or special regional features - dpa customers will always get the best pictures from Latin America. This is another significant step forward for our international photo network, which will provide our customers with additional benefits in terms of the diversity of their image offerings”, said Peter Kropsch, CEO of dpa.
Chief Editor Sven Gösmann stresses the special advantage of the fact that several agencies often report an event such as last week`s big fires in Valparaiso, Chile. “We can select highly professional images from several sources”, Gösmann said.
At the same time, dpa fotografía, the Spanish picture service, has been greatly expanded. For this, the dpa photohub in Buenos Aires has been decidedly boosted. Customers of the Spanish services of dpa can now rely on image and text so closely intertwined that they always enjoy the best offering. dpa offers its services in German, English, Spanish and Arabic.

About the new dpa photo service
As we move into 2017, dpa has vastly improved the quality of the international section of its photo service. Instead of cooperating with a single partner, dpa will work with a forward-looking network comprising the best agencies in the world.

We will expand our existing photo service in the international hubs of Buenos Aires, Cairo and Sydney. The photo service will thus become more international and at the same time more German, as all photos will be in future curated and labelled for the dpa service. We’ll become smaller and yet bigger, as the number of photos will decrease as the selection and quality increases.

We’ve responded to customer demand for quality over quantity with an easy-to-use yet comprehensive service and we offer a tailor-made photo service with the best photos from across the globe.

The significantly expanded dpa photo desk selects, curates and labels each photo. This means it will not only be easier to find exactly what you’re looking for, but that the automatic linkage of photos with text and video is significantly improved.
