Neil Newbon (Simon Walker), Georgia Bourke (Lacey Kane) and Nicole Barber-Lane (Myra McQueen) - up for 'Best Bad Boy', 'Best Newcomer' and 'Funniest Female' respectively - are among the nominees who feature in the stylish pictures.
The 2012 Inside Soap Awards - sponsored by online fashion retailer boohoo.com - were officially launched earlier this month, with a number of nods for Hollyoaks and its rival serial dramas.
Newbon is joined by co-star Emmett Scanlan (Brendan Brady) in the 'Bad Boy' category, but told the magazine: "I don't see it as us being in competition - Emmett and I are united against the other soaps! I'll be really happy if either of us wins, because that will be a victory for Hollyoaks."
Meanwhile, Bourke said of her 'Newcomer' nod: "I certainly wasn't expecting it! I'm very excited, though. I've got some great competition - Steven [Roberts, who plays George] had a really fantastic storyline at the start of this year with the whole homeless plot. But hopefully if people like my character they'll vote for me!"
Barber-Lane also called for support of her potential 'Funniest Female' title, saying: "Hopefully [people will vote] because they think Myra is funny. And if I win, they'll write more comedy stuff for her, which would be lovely."
The full photoshoot, which also features Steven Roberts and Tom Scurr (Barney Harper-McBride), can be found in the latest issue of Inside Soap.
Below, Soap Scoop presents some of the pictures and takes a look behind the scenes at the shoot.
