The nominations have been announced for the 6th annual UK Music Video Awards (MVA's) - which celebrates creative excellence in British and international music videos.

Rudimental, Foals, London Grammar, Florence + The Machine, Flying Lotus, Bjork, James Blake, Naughty Boy, Laura Mvula, London Grammar, Darwin Deez and Jon Hopkins are just some of the artists nominated.

MVA editorial director, David Knight, said: "The MVAs has become a globally-recognised event for celebrating the outstanding creative work in music videos in the UK and around the world."

The UK Music Video Awards and VEVO have renewed their partnership this year to create the Best New Artist Award.

Notable, it's a good year UK independent labels as Ministry of Sound collect nominations for London Grammar, Duke Dumont feat A*M*E* and DJ Fresh vs Diplo, while Ninja Tune artists Bonobo, Raffertie, Lapalux and Two Fingers win the label a total of 5 nominations. There are also multiple nominations for XL, Full Time Hobby and Warp Records.

The 'Best Alternative Video' category contains a few gems and it's great see Savages in the 'Live Music Coverage' category. The 'Best Music Ad' is a not surprisingly mixed category that sees Daft Punk, Hurts, Laura Mvula and Boards of Canada pitted against Olly Murrs. I daren't even comment.

The UK Music Video Awards 2013 ceremony will take place at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, on 28th October.

Nobody wants to hear predictions though do they, so best wait for a through post-awards evaluation of the results. Jovial, scathing, always truthful...
