Welcome to the Memorial's media centre. This site provides access to media releases, media kits containing information on upcoming anniversaries and events, details on how to request images and footage and information for news channels and documentary crews on filming and photography at the Memorial.

The media centre will provide newsworthy content direct from the Australia War Memorial as we move through significant anniversaries, including the Centenary of the First World War commencing on 4 August 2014. 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. External media conferences cannot be conducted on the Memorial's front courtyard/front steps, within the Commemorative courtyard or in the galleries.
