EdinburghReportage is waiting for your content, whether it is text, photos or video. We regularly set stories for you to add content to. If you have suggestions for new stories then please email us with your ideas! Edinburghreportage@gmail.com

LIVEBLOGGING is one way of covering some council meetings or to run web chats with a variety of people or organisations. All of these articles are published here.

On our n0tice Board we publish details of any events that we come across from time to time. You can also add any events which you think would be interesting to our n0tice board.

We ask you to participate in our user generated content project on our EdinburghReportage website.

PRESS RELEASES  from any PR companies with a story to tell us and our readers about Edinburgh businesses or events happening here are welcomed. 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 also publish our photos here on Blipfoto and Tumblr when we get a minute. Our Pinterest account is actively looking for you to pin your photos of Edinburgh there too!

VIDEO – watch our live video with 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 publish our audio slideshows and edited videos on our YouTube channel which you can see here and our Vimeo channel which is here.

We have a Scoop.it! magazine which you can read here.

We have advertising opportunities across the site and welcome enquiries about this. All of the advertising information is here.

Augmented Reality – We have been trialling this for a while.  Here is what you need to know about our use of augmented reality:

Download the Aurasma Lite app  which is available for iPhone or Android.

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…
