Press Association

The Press Association (PA) is the national news agency for the UK and Ireland and a leading multimedia content provider across web, mobile, broadcast and print.

We were founded in 1868 by a group of provincial newspaper proprietors to provide a London-based service of news-collecting and reporting from around the British Isles.

Today, PA is still owned by national and regional newspaper groups and is now a leading provider of multi-platform content solutions across a broad range of sectors spanning all major UK print, broadcast and digital media; rights holders; leading brands and corporates; and the public sector.

We have consistently maintained a reputation of trust and integrity at the heart of the UK media industry, and we believe these values are as relevant as ever in a fast changing connected world driven by consumer choice.

To meet this vision of being the pre-eminent provider of multi-platform content solutions, our activity is underpinned through excellence, innovation and collaboration:

Excellence in the quality of our content, the creativity of our products, the speed of our delivery and the standard of customer service.

Innovation because it is at the heart of everything we do; constantly evolving our technologies, content, products, and solutions, to exceed the expectations of customers and their users.

And collaboration, because working in partnerships with customers and developers will be vital to remaining competitive in markets characterised by technological advances and changing revenue models.
