dpa and news aktuell

news aktuell is a wholly owned subsidiary of the German press agency dpa, and is responsible for PR and communications services within the corporate group. Our relationship with Germany's largest news agency provides our clients with a number of key advantages.

Media access

We publish PR content on exclusive channels. With our PR network ots, press content reaches the systems of all relevant editorial offices in Germany in the same way as a news agency report does. The acronym ots is added as a seal of approval on every press release and is regarded as an agency standard by journalists.


As a reliable source of information in the era of fake news, this increases both trust and interest in press content published through ots. We learn from the expertise of dpa. No one is allowed to order ots mailings without thorough examination.

Direct cooperation

As a closely-linked corporate group, each section of dpa profits from the expertise of others. This means that we can guarantee our clients that the production of infographics, press releases and videos meets a journalistic standard that fulfils all the requirements for editorial material.
