The Art Vinyl prize recognises the year's best music artwork, with The Temper Trap, Keane and Muse triumphing in 2012. Fashion designer Vanessa Da Silva is nominated for her cover for Turbines by Tunng, while Edwyn Collins, Goldfrapp and Sir Elton John are also shortlisted.
Art Vinyl founder Andrew Heeps said the nominees include everything from "mass market appeal to the weird and wonderful".
Daft Punk's single 'Get Lucky', Elton John's album The Diving Board and McCartney's New are among the more high-profile records nominated. The full list of 50 nominees for this year's prize will be displayed in the Art Vinyl Gallery in East London's Broadway Market.
The overall winner will be announced on January 3, 2014.
