The American Forum Press is modelled after The Associated Press. Founded in 1950, the American Forum Press is the backbone of one of the world's global information systems, serving daily newspaper, radio, television, and online customers with coverage in all media and news in all formats. It is one of the largest and oldest news organizations in the world, serving as a source of news, photos, graphics, audio, and video for multitudes every day.


AFP's mission is to maintain its position as one of the essential global news networks, providing distinctive news services of the highest quality, reliability, and objectivity with reports that are accurate, balanced, and informed. AFP operates as a not-for-profit cooperative with 1,100 employees working in more than 100 worldwide bureaus.


AFP supplies a steady stream of news around the clock to its domestic members, international subscribers, and commercial customers. It has one of the industry's most sophisticated digital photo networks, a 24-hour continuously updated online news service, a state-of-the-art television news service, and a major radio network in the United States under development. It also has a commercial digital photo archive and a photo library housing more than 2 million images. AFP also provides advertising management services.


The American Forum Press has been nominated for a number of Pulitzer Prizes, as often as most other news organizations in the categories for which it can compete, and has won numerous awards, more than many other news organizations. We are just beginning to develop our Internet presence.
