ANN picture service goes live

The Asia News Network Picture Service started on June 6, with member newspapers exchanging news photographs on a daily basis. During trials, the photograph exchange will be accessible only to members. After trials, the picture service will be made available to subscribers all around the world.

This was one of several decisions taken by the executive board of ANN, at its meeting in Beijing last week. Japan’s Daily Yomiuri and Yomiuri Shimbun were formally inducted into the network at the meeting.

ANN comprises 12 newspapers from 10 Asian countries, which also includes the Indian daily “The Statesman.” Member newspapers cumulatively sell nearly 13 million copies every day.

The executive board also decided to go ahead with other plans for business cooperation. These include the setting up of an ANN portal, and the publication of a special supplement on tourism next September. ANN is a media initiative that was born in March 1999. It is supported by the Manila-based Asia Media Project of the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation.
