About the Council

The Australian Press Council was established in 1976 and is responsible for promoting good standards of media practice, community access to information of public interest, and freedom of expression through the media. The Council is the principal body with responsibility for responding to complaints about Australian newspapers, magazines and associated digital outlets.

  • responding to complaints from the public about material in Australian newspapers, magazines and associated digital outlets;
  • issuing statements on policy matters within its areas of interest, including through submissions to parliamentary committees, commissions and other public bodies.
