Who should be the recipient of the 2017 Equity Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Foxtel?

Anne Phelan
Anne Phelan, recipient of the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award

This unique 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.

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. They have made a lifelong commitment to Equity and the industry as a whole and the kind of person everyone wants to work with and for those lucky to have done so, it has been an extraordinarily memorable experience.

Last year’s recipient was Anne Phelan. Since proudly joining Equity in 1968, Anne has been a continuous presence on Australian stages and screens, starring in some of the country’s most beloved productions. As well as roles in Prisoner, Bellbird, Neighbours and everything in between, Anne is a passionate activist, campaigner, fundraiser and mentor.

Is there someone you feel is an incredible, talented and generous performer but also known as a great mentor and a supporter of the next generation?

Nominations close Sunday, September 24, 2017. The final decision will be made by your National Performers Committee.
