Update: Canada's History would like to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed material to our Great War Album book project. Submissions will still be accepted, but due to editing and printing deadlines, any new materials received will likely be included in our online archive. Canada's Great War Album will be available for purchase in fall 2014, published by Canada's History and HarperCollins Canada.
Please don't send us priceless originals. We prefer photos (or letters or other ephemera) that have been digitally scanned at 600 dpi, as jpegs. You can also provide prints of original photos or good quality photocopies of letters and ephemera.
Images that do not make the book will be published online at CanadasHistory.ca.
All who contribute to the book will have their name entered into a draw for a free, signed copy of The Great War Album. We will draw three winners.
By submitting photograph(s) or letter(s) through this form, you hereby warrant that you have the right to grant this permission for the use of the photograph(s) or letter(s). You also grant Canada’s National History Society and HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, its assigns and licensees, the non–exclusive permission to reprint the submitted photograph(s) and/or letter(s) in The Great War Album book, Canada’s History Magazine, in all print, audio, and digital editions of the books, including reprints, revised editions and sublicensed editions, and as part of any excerpts from the book, in all languages throughout the world, and to use the same in connection with any advertising, promotion, publicity or sale of said book or magazine.
Fields marked with an * are mandatory; we require this information to contact you in case we have any questions about your submissions.
If you are unable to send material to us electronically, you can mail copies and prints to:
Bryce Hall, Main Floor
515 Portage Avenue
Winnipeg, MB, R3B 2E9
Please do not send originals!
We will not return items unless return postage is included.
If you have problems with the online submission form, please contact our New Media Editor, Tanja Hütter.
Do not insert photos or scanned letters into a Word document — it will reduce the quality of the image. Please attach photos individually in the fields provided.
If you have more than four photos, you can enter a second submission.
