The German news agency dpa and the American news agency Associated Press (AP) have signed a long-term content sharing agreement, including text and photography, the two companies announced Wednesday in Hamburg and New York.
Stories and photos produced by AP will be distributed by dpa in Germany and Austria, with text also available in Switzerland. The AP will have access to dpa content, including text and photos, to add to their coverage.
"We share the same values, the same culture and similar challenges," said dpa editor-in-chief Wolfgang Buechner. "I look forward to working with my colleagues from AP."
Gary Pruitt, president and CEO of AP, said: "This new agreement with dpa assures that AP's content will continue to reach the many customers and news consumers who value it, and that we also receive timely and important content from dpa to distribute."
The deal will go into effect on January 1, 2013.
