Three hundred videos, a hundred of dispatches per day written in 6 languages (French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic) and about thirty infographics and videographics have completed the coverage of the Winter Games by AFP teams.


A dozen of photographers, 3 video reporters, 4 text reporters and 3 technicians were mobilized to cover the closing ceremony. Ten photo editors were on the photo desk of Pyeongchang to broadcast - in nearly live conditions - the closing ceremony to the clients of the Agency.


AFP has more than 100 people (journalists, photographers, videographers, technicians) deployed in Pyeongchang, Hong Kong, Paris and Seoul to ensure full multimedia coverage of the Winter Games.
