We are always seeking good articles and stories from members and
regional Sections. The deadlines for submissions are January 10th, May
10th, September 10th, respectively. Before submitting your story to the
Gazette, please contact our editorial team at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the following:
- Is your idea timely? Or did the Gazette run a story about the same location/person/climb in the past six issues (two years)?
- How long –
how many words your story should be. This is very important, since the
Gazette has only 32 pages total, and must accommodate a number of
members’ stories, as well as photographs, notices and advertisements.
- The writing deadline – the latest date the Gazette needs to receive your completed story in order to be considered for the upcoming issue.
- Photo guidelines
– when out in the mountains, if you hope to see any of your images
published in the Gazette, they must be taken in the largest size and
resolution your camera will allow. Any photos saved as less than 1 MB
will not be considered at all. Photos of 3 MB are much better.We can
accept Camera Raw, JPEG and TIFF formats.
- Cover photo
– the Gazette is always looking for great high resolution images that
depict some of the action from one of that issue’s feature stories.

Alpine Club of Canada reserves the right to publish these works in
