Fernando Garea (Agencia EFE)

The voice of the journalist and current president of Agencia EFE, Fernando Garea, when he was talking about the 80th anniversary that this international news agency celebrates since last October 3 and emphasizing the work and the sacrifice of all its professionals throughout these years.

Last Thursday, October 3, the Agencia EFE began the campaign on the occasion of its 80th anniversary, for which a new logo and slogan (“EFE siempre está”) has been created, in addition to a special website in which they are broadcast in open contents related to this celebration, such as the documentary “La Agencia” and a series of eight independent episodes, as well as information on the main events and sponsors of the anniversary.

The campaign was officially presented last Sunday, October 6, within the framework of the 75th General Assembly of the Inter-American Press Association (SIP), in Miami (United States), since the objective of the EFE’s celebration is not only to celebrate its 80 years of history, but above all to relaunch its image to strengthen its position as the world’s first agency in Spanish and among the major international news agencies.

All the actions of the 80th anniversary can also be followed through the official hashtag #EFEsiempreestá in the social networks of the agency, where different campaigns related to the commemoration will also be disseminated.
