to browse the covers and cast your vote online for the best album cover of 2011!
Art Vinyl will once again launch its search for the most exciting record sleeves of the year. And everyone can cast his or her vote...

This year, Art Vinyl has selected a shortlist of 50 sleeve designs for the award, which will be celebrated in exhibitions across the UK and Europe from November 2011 to February 2012. Last year’s award attracted coverage across the media, reaching an international audience with more than 4,000 voters taking part in an award which celebrates the best art and music of the year.

For Best Art Vinyl 2010, it was the Klaxons album ‘Surfing the Void’ with its striking image of a cat in a spacesuit which topped the list of the years favourite sleeve designs. Caribou’s ‘Swim’ came close behind in second place and the Swiss dance label Cadenza completed the Top 3 with its four-track EP of dance tunes. Each of these bands have joined the ranks of previous winners such as Thom Yorke, The Cribs and Fleet Foxes. And, with sales of vinyl records up by more than 50% this year, you can guarantee there’ll be plenty of fantastic new designs to choose from in 2011.
