Submissions

Army

News, Sport and Unit Activities

Stories and photos on a wide variety of subjects and activities may be submitted to the Editor (see About us for contact details) for consideration for publication in their service newspaper.

Guide to Submissions

Most of the content within the Service newspapers is generated by Defence News and Defence public affairs staff, however contributions will be considered.

As a general guide, if writing a story, authors should get a feel for story style, size and tone by reading items already published in their Service newspaper. However, it is not necessary to write the story yourself. The Editor, if informed in time, might assign a reporter to the story who will conduct interviews as necessary.

Guide to Photographers

Photographs must be submitted in electronic format. It is important to note that photos can only be published in print media if they are of sufficient file size. Please set your digital camera to its highest quality setting before taking any photograph.

If a photo looks good on your computer screen (at 72 dots per inch) it may not be printable (180 DPI for newspapers or 240 DPI for glossy magazines). You will fit far fewer photos on your storage medium, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Defence photographic support for important events and activities may also be arranged through the Editor.

Where to send
