About DutchNews.nl

DutchNews.nl is a provider of quality Dutch news and current affairs in English for an international audience.

Some 25,000 people read DutchNews.nl every day, either online, through our daily digital newsletter or via our social media channels.

Editorial policy

Our aim is to provide broad coverage of the main Dutch news so that non-Dutch speakers are kept up to date with events. This means we cover all sorts of news, from politics and economic developments to crime and sport.

Our news copy is based on our own years of experience, media coverage, press releases and Dutch newspaper articles and we try to credit and link to our sources as much as possible.

We see our job not only to inform but to explain current events in the Netherlands, so we try to include background where relevant.

Our photographs come from the Novum news agency, from Wikimedia Commons and other sources. We always credit full sized photographs and we donate to Wikipedia. If you feel we have wrongly used or attributed your work, please contact the editor.

Comment and features

Our opinion section includes our own editorials, articles by third parties and translations of pieces published by other Dutch media. All our translations are made with the approval of the writer and copyright holder.

We also produce our own features and are open to relevant, news-based suggestions. Contact editor@dutchnews.nl for a copy of our guidelines for freelancers.

We do not accept ‘free’ copy on principle. Commercial organisations wishing to publish sponsored content or to provide information to our readers as a partner should contact advertising@dutchnews.nl.
