Pandemic Photo Contest

Photography Contest

The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada Museum and Archive is holding a photography contest!

If you were a serving member in 2020 or 2021 and took some photos you think are particularly cool or impressive, then we encourage you to submit them to our contest (even if they were taken prior to the pandemic being officially declared in March 2020.)

Who is Eligible: Any members who served in the battalion during 2020 and 2021.

Content: Must contain QOR Battalion or QOR soldiers’ content. Training, parachute jumps, operations, social events, etc. would all qualify. Please label/name each photograph clearly as to what it was and when it took place. Do not include your name in the photograph name.

How Many: You can submit up to five photographs.

Acceptable Formats: JPG is preferred but any photograph format is acceptable – png, JPEG, TIFF, etc. (Not pdf.)

Submission Deadline: Photographs must be submitted to museum@qormuseum.org by midnight on Saturday 30 April 2022.  If a photo is too large to email, please use the above email for sharing. Ensure you include your name and rank (but not in the photo name.)

Judging: Will be done by members of the QOR Museum Board of Governors during the first two weeks of May with the winners announced by the end of May. Judges will also determine if specific categories are required to complete the judging.

Prizes: To be determined.
