X JALÓN ÁNGEL INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE

X JALÓN ÁNGEL INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE

The Jalón Ángel Photographic Archive, guarded by the San Jorge University (San Valero Group), is organising the 10th Jalón Ángel International Photography Prize.

Ángel Hilario García de Jalón Hueto (1898-1976), better known as Jalón Ángel, was one of the most prominent figures of portrait photography in Spain during his 50 years of professional career. This photographer, of great social and human impact, began his earliest training in Logroño and perfected it in the first decade of the twentieth century, first in Lyon and then in Paris. In 1926 he settled in Zaragoza, where he combined his most personal and creative photography, specialising in travel, urban and natural landscapes, with his studio portraits.

His social concern led him to promote, in 1953, the San Valero Professional School, the root of the current San Valero Group, whose aim was to provide access to working life through the training of young people and adults without adequate resources.

This award pays tribute to the memory of Jalón Ángel with two annual categories: Portrait, a genre in which he excelled at a national level, and Travel and Traditions, to which he devoted much of his photographic creativity and interest. In addition, a special category dedicated to Cultural Heritage has been added to this year’s edition.

The author may present a maximum of one photograph to each category.

Entries must belong to one of the following genres:

  1. Portrait: spontaneous or posed. The subject of the image is a single person or several (group portrait). The image must be focused on the person/s. Portraits of animals, or photographs of objects or plants are not allowed.
  2. Travel: photographs showing the natural, cultural, or traditional peculiarities of a country (including urban or natural landscapes, but not focusing on the human figure as the main or only element).
  3. Cultural Heritage: images reflecting the cultural, artistic and/or historical heritage of a community, people, or country, maintained to the present day and handed down to future generations, both tangible and intangible, and relevant to the culture of a people, a region or humanity as a whole

The competition is free to enter.
