The Edinburgh Reporter is the news website for Edinburgh providing news, events and sport features. It is aimed at people living , working or visiting the capital of Scotland.

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 editor@theedinburghreporter.co.uk or use our Contact us page.

You can send your own story for publication by accessing the form here.

AUDIO – You may sign up to receive updates from our audio reports published on Audioboom by clicking on our account here.

COMMENTS are welcome in response to all of our articles, as long as these comply with our very simple guidelines.

Please do not use offensive language and please stick to the thread of the article and other comments. More detailed rules on interacting with The Edinburgh Reporter are here.

There are also classified ads which we would love you to use and which are very competitively priced.

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.

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. Again you may use our What’s Your Story feature here to ensure we get your news.

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! We have a Flickr Group here which is newly set up in May 2016.

SOCIAL MEDIA – keep up with our news on Twitter or Facebook and Instagram.

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.
