Spirit of UBIQUE Contest (formerly Regimental Photo Contest)
The RCA recognizes the diversity of talents and abilities amongst our members and we are looking to showcase all of it.
Show us your Gunner Spirit in whatever way you enjoy!
The updated contest is designed to promote creativity, inclusivity and encourage a broader participation base to capture Artillery spirit. Funds are allocated annually towards prizes for the Spirit of Ubique Contest. Submissions can be:
- Poems; and
- Hand Crafted Objects of any material (wood, metal, clay, wool).
The current funding allocation is $100/quarterly/winner.
ALL ENTRIES MUST REFLECT THE ARTILLERY AND DEMONSTRATE CREATIVITY AND THE SPIRIT BEHIND OUR GUNNERS.
The contest is open to all members of the Regimental Family.
The contest is held four times per fiscal year with the winner receiving $100 and photo of the submission published on the website. All submissions entered in the contest become the property of RHQ RCA and may be published in Regimental publications and on the website. Entries may be submitted directly to the Regimental Adjutant RCA – ShiloRHQRCA@forces.gc.ca or +RHQ@CFB/BFC Shilo@Shilo

Entries must be submitted in electronic form (jpeg or tif – High Definition). Do not embed photographs in Word. RHQ RCA will translate as required. There is no limit on entries per contest.
*If you are submitting a hand crafted object then you will need to submit various photos of the object (at least 2 photos).
