The NSW War Memorials Register is undergoing maintenance. There may be temporary disruption of services.
Photographs are an important part of recording a war memorial on the NSW War Memorials Register. They document the memorial's physical characteristics, and provide a record of its condition, which can help identify conservation and repair issues. Following the below guidelines will ensure your photographs are of a suitable format and quality to be published on the Register.
We encourage you to download our full guide to photographing war memorials before you begin documenting the memorial.
Please note, any images submitted to the Register are subject to review under our Editorial Policy and reuse under the Creative Commons Attribution. We reserve the right to exclude or edit any photo submitted, without notice.
To submit updated photos for existing memorial listings, please use our Photo Submission Form.
You must have at least one high-quality, clear photograph of the memorial in its entirety to submit a new or updated memorial to the Register. We also suggest you take and submit multiple photographs, as shown in the 'What to photograph' section below.
To fully document the memorial, we recommend taking the below photos. Please also refer to the example photos on this page and in our guide to photographing war memorials.
Remember to always check your photos before leaving the area to make sure you have fully captured the memorial and that your photos are not blurry or otherwise unusable.
