Remembrance Day isn't the only time Canadians remember war veterans. There are places, street names and memorials all around us honouring those who sacrificed their lives for our country.

In honour of the 100th anniversary of the First World War, we are launching a new photo contest where Photo Club members can share their images of landmarks, monuments, memorials and place names that came out of that war. From now until Nov. 18, 2014, you can upload your images of First World War sites, memorabilia and commemorative events from across Canada.

Each entrant who submits at least one photo will be entered in a random draw for the chance to win one of five prize packs, including a one-year subscription to Canadian Geographic magazine.

Only photos taken in Canada? It seems ridiculous to me... the contest is to remember WWI. I have photos of Canadian Grave sites but they are (surprise) in France. Too bad.

I posted my image at the required 1000px and 72ppi and it is posted in very poor quality. Is there some way I can re-post at 300ppi?
