Photography at the Shrine

The Shrine of Remembrance Act 1978 vests the exclusive right to use the image of the Shrine of Remembrance to the Shrine of Remembrance Trustees. In exercising its authority, Trustees recognise that visitors and members of the community may wish to record their visit to the Shrine by the making of photos.

Trustees wish to ensure that photos of the Shrine and Shrine Reserve are made and used in a manner consistent with the Act; supports awareness of the Shrine as a pre-eminent memorial and major, iconic visitor attraction. There is also a need to ensure photography activities do not cause damage, negatively impact on visitor experiences, misrepresent, or promote inappropriate activities or contravene agreements regarding artefacts on loan to the Shrine.

An application process is instituted for any photography where the intended purpose for the use of imagery taken is known to be for a commercial purpose. Fees may be charged, as is permissible under the Shrine of Remembrance Act 1978. Imagery used for non-commercial purposes, except where proposed inside the Shrine building or courtyards, are exempt from the application process.

  • Photography, refers to still and/or motion recording of the visual image of the Shrine of Remembrance by chemical (film) or electronic (digital) means and includes the activities related to making the image/s.
  •  Non-commercial photography is where the Photography is solely for personal use and not for the purpose of seeking or deriving a financial or commercial benefit by the photographer or for any other party by sale or use in advertising. The subsequent sale or use in advertising of any Non-Commercial Photography causes the original Photography to be considered Commercial Photography.
  • Commercial photography is where the Photography is performed for the purpose of seeking or deriving a financial or commercial benefit by the photographer or for any other party by sale or use in advertising.
