Infectious Records have made their mark on the nominations list with two Alt-J nominations for Tessellate and Breezeblocks and one for the Temper Trap's Trembling Hands. Another label to have received multiple nominations is Ram Records, who have won 3 for their Delta Heavy videos for Get By and Hold Me.

Last year's Video of the Year directors Daniels dominate the Indie Rock International category with 3 videos ' Foster the People's Houdini, Tenacious D's Rize of the Fenix and The Shins' Simple Song.

Other directors spotlighted by the Awards this year include Romain Gavras' videos for M.I.A (Bad Girls) and Jay-Z & Kanye West (No Church in the Wild), both of which have picked up multiple nominations and Yoann Lemoine's Woodkid (Run Boy Run) and Lana del Rey (Blue Jeans, Born to Die) videos.

Closer to home, David Wilson is nominated for his Alternative Advent Calendar and video for David Guetta's Titanium, while his Pelican video for The Maccabees wins a nomination in Best Art Direction & Design. Fellow British director Emil Nava sees his videos for Rita Ora, Ed Sheeran and Paloma Faith nominated in the Best Pop and Best Urban categories. Both are up for the Best Director award.

The UK Music Video Awards and VEVO have also got together to allow the fans to vote for their favourite British video of the past year with The People's Choice Award. Eighteen videos by nine different artists are in the running in the People's Choice Award - to be revealed on Tuesday, October 16th, when the Award is launched on VEVO's website, and the VEVO Facebook page.

The MVAs 2012 is the premier awards show dedicated to innovation and creativity in music video, the medium that has become the audio-visual entertainment of choice for the YouTube/VEVO and social media generation.
The UK Music Video Awards editorial director, David Knight, says, 'It's a fascinating period for music videos as a creative medium. Technology, the internet and social media continues to change how music videos are made and how they are consumed. They are central to people's lives again, a huge source of entertainment ' and sometimes awe and wonder.

'And the MVAs has become a globally-recognised event for celebrating the outstanding creative work in music videos in the UK and around the world. Last year filmmakers travelled from Europe and the United States to attend our biggest show ever. It was a very good night indeed ' and I'm sure the fifth MVAs will be the best one yet.

The UK Music Video Awards 2012 ceremony will take place at The Empire, Leicester Square in London's West End, on 8th November.
