The Equity Lifetime Achievement Award
The Equity Lifetime Achievement Award was launched in 2009 to honour the achievements of a leading Australian performer who has had a distinguished career and been an inspiration to other Australian performers.
Prior to the award ceremony, members of Actors Equity Australia are invited to nominate an Australian performer who they feel should be honoured with the Equity Lifetime Achievement Award. Winners are then selected by members of the National Performers Committee.
The Equity Lifetime Achievement Award is presented by Foxtel.
