With the 2018 AIR Awards finalists already announced, the Australian Record Labels Association are thrilled to reveal the five nominees for the 2018 Best Independent Label award.
The 2018 AIR Awards Best Independent Label nominees are:

Thanks to moshtix (supporting partner of the 2018 AIR Awards), the recipient of this year's Best Independent label award will receive a digital marketing package valued at $20,000 to help showcase their talent to the music public.
The Best Independent Label award category was introduced in 2012 to celebrate and pay tribute to the great work that is done by our home-grown labels.
To be eligible, labels need to have artists or releases nominated for awards in the given year. This forms the long list of nominees, from which AIR members vote.
