Media centre

Welcome to the Australia War Memorial's media centre. This site provides access to media releases, media kits, details on requesting images and footage and information for news media and documentary crews on filming and photography at the Memorial.

The media centre provides newsworthy content direct from the Memorial as we move through significant anniversaries, including the Centenary of the First World War. To see what is currently available view our media kits page.

To find out what events are planned at the Memorial check our What's On calendar, or keep up to date with news on the Memorial blog or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and Instagram.

It is important to note that the Memorial should not be used as a backdrop to lobby, provide political comment or to imply approval of products. The Memorial is a place of commemoration for all Australians, and as such, visitors should not be inconvenienced.

The Commemorative Area is the sacrosanct heart of the Memorial. Out of respect and to maintain the dignity of the space, the Memorial does not permit media calls, interviews or pieces-to-camera taking place in this area.

Media seeking to operate on-site at the Memorial (including on the exterior) should make contact with the Communications and Marketing (CAM) team to seek permission prior to arriving. Any media entering the building should be accompanied by a CAM staff member while inside.
