Art Vinyl's annual Best Art Vinyl award gives fans voice in selecting the year's best music related graphic design. For 2012, the stakes have been raised—a shortlist of 50 finalists is being shown in the Front Room at London's St Martins Lane. The exhibition is a celebration of the best in art, photography, and graphic design in contemporary music culture. Visitors have an opportunity to cast a vote for the winning entry…a very contemporary way of choosing a champion.

The award will be presented on January 10, 2013.
