The Edinburgh Reporter is the news website for Edinburgh. We write about local news, events that are taking place here and local sport. The news 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 also send your own story for publication by accessing the form here.


You may sign up to receive our podcasts published on Podbean or Anchor.


These 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 is also a Jobs Board where you can post a job you have available or indeed a job that you want. We would love you to use this which is free for the moment.


This is one way we use to cover some council meetings or to run web chats with a variety of people or organisations.

All of these articles are published here.


Released 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. As a PR professional you may use our What’s Your Story feature here to ensure we get your news.


These 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. You may also submit a photo to be included in our Reader’s Photo feature in our monthly newspaper.

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!


Keep up with our news on Twitter or Facebook and Instagram


We are always producing video and use it on our social media pages and in our articles.

We may also publish our edited videos on our YouTube channel which you can see here and our Vimeo channel which is here.
