Viral Press brings together more than 15 years experience of working in news, from agency level to national newspapers and websites. We’re journalist first and foremost – our main aim getting the whole story from start to finish and telling it.
We noticed the need for well-researched user-generated content. The kind of content that applies the traditional journalism of yesteryear – the high standard of newspaper research and storytelling – with the digital news values of publishers in the 21st century.
By starting from our base in South East Asia and distributing with partner agencies in the UK, we have quickly become one of the biggest suppliers of news, pictures and video from the region.
It’s a feat that hasn’t gone unnoticed and it has opened up the entire region to a new audience. Plus, every day we’re receiving new content from frontier regions.
Our network of contributors and independent freelancers can also mobilise quickly on breaking news to provide pictures and video on emerging news stories.
