The host of the 2014 ceremony will be Claire Hooper at the Heath Ledger Theatre in the State Theatre Centre on Monday 14 July 2014.

This will be a fitting end to the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.

A spokesperson has said, "The event will feature over 500 film industry leaders, Western Australian screen practitioners, media, sponsors and government officials all coming together to celebrate the very best in West Australian screen production."

The Film and Television Institute received a grand total of 448 entries from 172 entrants across 143 screen projects.
