Adele, Kate Bush and PJ Harvey will battle it out for the best album award at next month's Ivor Novello ceremony.
This is the first time that the album shortlist has been exclusively female.
Two of pop sensation Adele's tracks Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You are also nominated for most performed work, alongside Take That's The Flood.
Rolling in the Deep is also up for best song musically and lyrically at the annual awards ceremony to be presented in London on May 17th.
The Ivor Novellos celebrate British and Irish songwriting, with last year's big winner being Plan B, who scooped three prizes.
While all the albums shortlisted are performed by women, producer Paul Epworth is nominated alongside Adele as he helped write some of the key songs on the singer's hugely successful 21.
PJ Harvey is listed for her Mercury Prize-winning record Let England Shake, which is a concept album about Britain at war.
