The UK Music Video Awards has unveiled its shortlist and we can reveal the finalists in our favourite creative categories.

The UK MVAs celebrate the best work in music videos made in the past 12 months, covering a range of over 30 categories – from big-budget pop video productions, to low budget gems. They primarily honour the creative people behind the artform – from directors and producers, to cameramen, art directors, editors, animators and more. 

The awards event will take place on Monday 10 November, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London's South Bank, so to whet your appetite, we've chosen to highlight the best of the art direction/design, cinematography, interactivity, colour grade, animation & VFX entries.
