The Edinburgh Reporter is the hyperlocal news website for Edinburgh. It is aimed at people living and/or working in the capital, although some of the content may also be of interest to visitors.
We welcome contributions from anyone who has something to say about Edinburgh. If you have an article, or even an idea for an article which you could write, then please email us firstname.lastname@example.org or use our Contact us page. Or you can Submit your Story by accessing the form here. This will allow you to add your own photos to your article too. It is best if these are no bigger than 600 pixels wide.
We publish details of any events that we come across here on our n0tice Board.
n0tice is a kind of community virtual notice board which has been developed by The Guardian, and we were invited to be part of the pilot. You can also add any events which you think would be interesting to our n0tice board.
We welcome press releases from any PR companies with a story to tell us and our readers about Edinburgh businesses or events happening here. We use press releases to get as many stories as possible out to our readers,although they are always edited and checked before publication.
Photographs are essential to us so that our pages are alive with good, relevant images, and we take our own photographs or use photos from others but only with express permission. If you have photos you think we could use then please feel free to email and we will publish with full attribution to you or indeed your business.
We use video and audio where we can, employing the ever-advancing technology available. For example we have our Bambuser channel which streams video live to our site. You can see our latest footage on Bambuser which is filmed with an iPhone in our archive Bambuser footage which is on our Bambuser page here. It is possible for this footage to be used by others but we would urge you to say where it originated from and give us credit for our work.
We also publish our audio slideshows and edited videos on our YouTube channel which you can see here.
We liveblog some council meetings and run live web chats with a variety of organisations. All of these articles are published here.
If we see some pdf documents that we think are of use or interest to our readers, then we publish those on Scribd and usually include them in our articles, but you can read all of them here.
We also publish details of interesting Edinburgh stories which are just a bit big for us or have passed us by on our Scoop.it! magazine which you can read here.
We also have a Pinterest account and are actively looking for you to pin your photos of Edinburgh there too!

Augmented Reality – We have been introducing you to our use of Aurasma over recent weeks. For those of you who have not read our earlier articles about this then here is what you need to know about our use of augmented reality
Follow The Edinburgh Reporter channel by using the search facility in the app.
Find our trigger images and use your phone to watch our added content automatically.
For example we have set up an Aura based on the green and white logo on the Starbucks cup. What will you see when you use your phone to trigger it…? This is not seen as any endorsement of Starbucks, but simply a way of using a fairly widely available image to trigger our augmented reality content….You should also be able to use the photo below…
