Submission Guidelines for Newspaper Articles


The Courier welcomes voluntary article and photographic submissions from all members of our military community. We work hard with a limited staff to bring you a good quality newspaper. You can help us by following these guidelines when submitting your articles and photographs:

- Articles should be sent in Microsoft Word.

- Aim for a word count of 300.

- Please keep bolded characters to a minimum and refrain from using other font styles (italics, underlining, centering, etc.)

- Spell out acronyms on first reference and then abbreviate in subsequent references.

- Articles must include author’s full name and rank for attribution. Also include a daytime phone number.

- Do not include photos or graphics within typed pages. Send them as separate files.

- Photographs may be delivered electronically as ‘jpeg’ or ‘tiff’ files, by hand, or by CR mail. (Please do not send photos imbedded in article text)! Indicate photographer’s full name and rank for attribution.

- All photographs depicting military honours and awards are published as ‘head & shoulder’ photos on our Accolades page.


Send us an article at thecourier@telus.net or fill out this form.
