British rockers Los Campesinos! and Kids In Glass Houses are among the acts competing for the 2012 Welsh Music Prize.
Organisers have released a shortlist of 10 artists competing for the award, which was launched last year (11) to recognise the finest in Welsh music.
Los Campesinos! have been nominated for their album Hello Sadness, while Kids in Glass Houses' In Gold Blood and The Plot Against Common Sense by Future of the Left are also in the running.
The winner will be determined by a panel of industry experts and announced during the Swn Festival in Cardiff in October (12).
The inaugural prize was scooped by Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys last year (11).
