About Centenary News

CentenaryNews.com has been launched to provide news and information about the 2014-2018 First World War Centenary.

It is staffed by volunteers and aims to provide independent, impartial and international coverage.

The website is owned and editorially controlled by a not-for-profit social enterprise, Centenary Digital Ltd.

It contains news items, videos, details of events, educational resources, and links to articles and blogs.

The site also includes a summary of organisations who are involved with the study of the First World War, or who are planning Centenary events.

Where possible and relevant, we refer to sources of information, and provide links to external source websites.

Centenary News has also set up a team to provide video and digital services to Centenary organisations - and we would be interested to hear from groups about how we could jointly develop projects associated with the site.

We hope you find Centenary News interesting and useful.



Centenary News has developed the website to allow advertisers who would like to promote their organisations, events or projects related to the First World War or the Centenary.

We have built up a sizeable visitor base since launching the site in 2011, with strong search engine optimisation. We expect the site to grow significantly in the months leading up to and after the Centenary.

If you are interested in advertising on the website, or would like to view our rate card, please contact us at: contactcentenarynews@gmail.com.

You can read more about advertising opportunities on Centenary News here.



Centenary News is committed to respecting the copyright of articles, videos and images.

Our approach is based on legal advice and feedback from the Intellectual Property Office of the United Kingdom.

We aim to source all articles, videos and images, include links to third party content, and avoid using images that are marked as belonging to a commercial third party organisation.

We do use logos, images and video that have been published or released by organisations for publicity reasons.

We adopt a strict 'Tell Us and We'll Take it Down' policy: so if there are any copyright concerns and you wish to have any content from the website removed, please contact us at: contactcentenarynews@gmail.com
