dpa und news aktuell
100% synergy

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 directly reaches the systems of all relevant editorial teams in Germany through the dpa news ticker. The acronym ots is added as a seal of approval on every press release and is regarded as an agency standard by journalists.


The traditional, journalistic background of the dpa brand lends ots notifications a high level of credibility.
As a reliable source of information in the era of fake news, this increases both trust and interest in press content published through ots.

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.
