Equity Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Foxtel

on .

In 2009 the Equity Foundation joined with Foxtel to launch the Equity Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Foxtel.   

This annual award honours the achievements of a leading Australian performer who has had both a distinguished career and has also been a leader and inspiration to other Australian performers.

It is an award nominated by performers – an opportunity for those in the industry to give due recognition to one of their own; not only for what they have achieved during their career as a performer, but as someone who has, by their own example, demonstrated great leadership and provided mentoring that has been of enormous benefit and inspiration to our colleagues.
