Belga has its own team of photographers and works regularly with 20 stringers. Photographers on the field transmit their pictures via internet, GSM or satellite. Pictures are available to customers within 15 minutes of the news event. Belga photographers cover all important news events in Belgium but also all news events involving Belgians abroad, such as sports events, official journeys of the Royal family or members of the government, etc. The rest of the international picture coverage is obtained through our partners EPA, AFP, MaxPPP, etc. At Belga, a team of 4 pictures editors takes care of all agenda issues, selects the adequate pictures, completes the data on the pictures and writes the captions.
