Where does the money go to?
As a start-up, we are in the process of getting the legal right to make collaborations. Hiring notaries, paying the registration and all the paperwork needed is of high cost.
We want to train the staff with professionals, have a newsroom, have personalised badges for the coverages and be able to promote our article on social media.
Hosting a website is of high cost. Most of our money goes to the hosting of the website.
Some events require a fee to get a press pass. A refund of the pass will be given to the reporter in question.
“ We believe that The Amsterdammer will allow students to enhance their writing skills and become more curious about their surroundings. We have faith that our staff is the future of journalism: they are learning the workings of the profession at an early stage of their lives. We strongly believe that one can only make a change in a macro level if we know how to make a change in a micro level”
We are an independent student-run news outlet that writes about the university of Amsterdam, the city of Amsterdam, opinions and lifestyle.
Engage national and international students, develop technical, practical, ethical and successful journalism skills. Enhance creativity in the coverage and ways of communicating.
