  1. The Australian Associated Press (AAP) has announced that it will be closing down in June, marking the end of the 85-year-old news agency and leaving many award-winning photojournalists out of a job as the Australian editorial landscape adjusts to the loss.

    “The unprecedented impact of the digital platforms that take other people’s content and distribute it for free has led to too many companies choosing to no longer use AAP’s professional service. We have reached the point where it is no longer viable to continue.” Too many of AAP’s former customers are relying on Google and Facebook, said AAP CEO Bruce Davidson.
