The BBC has revealed the 15 acts which have made up its Sound of 2011 longlist. The competition is designed to discover the rising stars who will be making an impact next year and has previously proved to be fairly prescient in predicting who will make it to the top.

Previous winners have included solo star Ellie Goulding, singer Adele, pop star Mika and acoustic guitar player Corinne Bailey Rae. Those appearing in this year's list, including The Vaccines, Warpaint, Jamie Woon and Daley will all be hoping to make a similar impact following their nomination for the honour.

Under the rules of the competition, acts cannot have appeared in the top 20 of the album and single charts prior to November 14th 2010 and are not allowed to already be famous. The winner is to be revealed in the first week of January.

Last month, 2010 winner Goulding released a deluxe version of her critically acclaimed debut album Lights. The record, entitled Bright Lights, features seven bonus tracks including a cover of Elton John's Your Song.
