'ARMENPRESS: History' photo project to be launched with assistance of Beeline
YEREVAN, MAY 22, ARMENPRESS. ARMENPRESS news agency, Beeline Armenia and the Technological Development Center Fund are announcing the launch of the ARMENPRESS: History project.
The purpose of the project is to digitize the news agency’s unique photo archive: nearly 10,000 photos from the archive, and create the ARMENPRESS: History website.
“Being the oldest news agency of Armenia (founded in 1918), ARMENPRESS has covered all significant events of the last one hundred years of Armenia’s history. The main sponsor of the project is Beeline, while the digitization will be carried out by the Technological Development Center Fund.
A serious project is being launched ahead of ARMENPRESS news agency’s 100th anniversary of establishment.
With the assistance of the news agency’s partners, the best photos of ARMENPRESS’ archive will be available to the public. ARMENPRESS has historically been and continues to be one of the forges of Armenian photography, and this project, figuratively speaking, is a unique ‘national gallery’ of photojournalist and photo art”, Aram Ananyan, director of ARMENPRESS said.
“Beeline is always carrying out projects aimed at the development and spread of Armenian digital content. We are convinced that the ARMENPRESS: History project will bring its serious contribution to the enrichment of Armenian digital content and will be very interesting for the public. I am glad that the digitized photo archive will be available to the people through our assistance, while we will try to make people’s lives even better through digital technologies”, Beeline Armenia CEO Andrei Pyatakhin said.
“We are launching an extremely important and responsible project, which is interesting in terms of both technology and content. We are grateful to Beeline for assisting the project. We are ready to carry out the digitization on a high level through the best technical equipment and specialists”, Samvel Chakhalyan, director of the Technological Development Center Fund said.
The Technological Development Center Fund is implementing the project in the office of ARMENPRESS news agency.
