The nominations have been tallied and the finalists have been selected for this years About.com World Music Readers' Choice Awards, where you get to weigh in on the 2013 Best World Music Record Label award winner.

The Best World Music Record Label is a straightforward category with simple guidelines: nominees need to be a named label that releases at least two albums annually that focus primarily on international music, either broadly-based or of a specific genre or region. Releases can be either all new recordings, multi-artist collections, or re-releases of archival material, and can appear on any format (vinyl, CD, MP3, etc.).

The voting phase runs from February 19, 2013 to March 19, 2013, and each individual can vote once per category per day, so come back often, and tell all of your friends! Winners receive bragging rights and the knowledge that you, their fans, love them dearly.

To see all of this year's categories, a timeline, and other nuts and bolts, and vote for the other seven categories, visit the World Music Readers' Choice Awards information page.

So without further ado, here are this year's nominees!

Thank you so much for taking a moment to vote in these polls, and don't forget to encourage your friends and fellow fans to do so as well!
