Photography at the Shrine

The Shrine Trustees are committed to ensuring that the image of the Shrine and Shrine Reserve are used in a manner consistent with the the Shrine of Remembrance Act 1978; supporting awareness of the Shrine as a pre-eminent memorial and major, iconic visitor attraction. An application process applies to request permission for photography activities that are commercial in nature.

Defining commerical and non-commercial photography

  • 'Photography' refers to still and/or motion recording of the visual image of the Shrine by chemical (film) or electronic (digital) means and includes the activities related to making the image/s.
  • 'Non-commercial photography' is defined as photography that 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 defined as photography that 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.

(Imagery used for non-commercial purposes, except where proposed inside the Shrine building or courtyards, are exempt from the application process.)
