Bob Dylan is nominated for his album Together Through Life

Bob Dylan, Doves, Arctic Monkeys and Madness are among 25 acts longlisted for this year's Uncut Music Award.

Kings of Leon and Graham Coxon are also in the running for the prize which is awarded to the "most inspiring and rewarding" album of the past 12 months.

The judging panel includes Billy Bragg, Mark Radcliffe, Christian O'Connell and Robin Pecknold, the frontman of last year's winner, Fleet Foxes.

The winner will be announced in Uncut magazine on 24 November.

Nominations for the prize are chosen regardless of nationality, age and sales figures.

Allan Jones, editor of Uncut, said: "There has been a lot of brilliant music over the last year, as our long list of 25 albums vividly demonstrates.

"Deciding which of them most merits winning the 2009 Uncut Music award is going to be an exciting process, but no easy task."

The judges will trim the longlist down to eight acts on 27 October before picking their winner a month later.
