With the other category finalists already unveiled earlier in the year, the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) has just announced the five nominees for the 2018 Best Independent Label.

The recipient of this year’s award will receive a digital marketing package valued at $20,000 thanks to moshtix.

To be eligible in this category, labels need to have artists or releases nominated for awards in the given year.

The 2018 awards will take place at Adelaide's Queen's Theatre on 26 July, in parallel with AIR's second annual Indie-Con Australia Conference at The Hindley on 26 and 27 July.
