Rob Carlton, who played Kerry Packer in the biopic ‘Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo’, has been named as host of the 2014 Screen Music Awards for Sydney in November.

The Screen Music Awards celebrate the union of music and the screen. 12 categories covering documentaries, short films, mini-series, advertising, children’s television and feature film scores, are handed to Australia’s best film and television composers of the past year.

Musical Director Ashley Irwin will direct this year’s production. “It’s both a pleasure and a privilege to be invited back to musically direct the Screen Music Awards. Having been away from Oz for 25 years, working on this show reminds me of the awesome talent that exists in Australia,” he said in a statement.

An industry panel of Australia’s film and television composers will determine four nominees in 10 of the categories. The additional categories of ‘Most Performed Screen Composer – Australia’ and ‘Most Performed Screen Composer – Overseas’ are based on royalty earnings.
