General Submission Guidelines

The CONTACT delivers news and information about 8 Wing / CFB Trenton; at home and around the world. We depend on you and our military community for articles, personal stories and photos. We work hard, with a limited staff, to bring you a quality weekly newspaper. You can help considerably by following these guidelines on preparing your submissions for the paper:

• Articles should be typed in upper and lower case and in plain black text. Don’t worry about formatting with underlines, bolds, italics, colours, etc. Acronyms should be spelled out on first reference, and then abbreviated when referred to thereafter.

• Do not include clip-art or graphics within your typed pages. Additional graphics/logos may be sent as separate files.

• Articles may be mailed, e-mailed or delivered in person. Non e-mail submissions should be saved in rich text format (.rtf) and as “text only” on a 3.5” disk and accompanied by a hard copy of your article.

• Articles must include author’s full name, unit and phone #.

• Wherever possible, photos should be included with your article. Include your name and caption on the back of each photo, and number multiple photos. Electronic photos should be saved in either a jpeg or tiff format at a high resolution,to ensure quality reproduction.
