Nominations for the inaugural Frank Lowy Fellowship closed on 24 November.

The Frank Lowy Fellowship will be awarded to a talented person working in the Australian shopping centre industry who has demonstrated both distinction in their professional field and a commitment to shopping centre industry excellence.

This initiative is intended to foster and celebrate the next generation leaders, collaborators and innovative thinkers that will ensure Australia’s shopping centre industry continues to be a world leader.

Eligibility Criteria

The nominee should be an Australian resident who is employed by a company which owns, manages, and/or develops shopping centres in Australia.

The nominee can work in any field relevant to the ownership, management, or development of shopping centres, including leasing, development, design and construction, shopping centre management, facilities management, sustainability, and marketing (not exhaustive).

The nominee’s employer need not be an Australian company or a member company of the Shopping Centre Council of Australia (SCCA).


The Fellowship recipient will receive a cash contribution towards a professional development pursuit or industry event of choice. This could include reasonable anticipated expenses to travel to and attend an opportunity overseas.
