The 10th Jalón Ángel International Photography Award 2024 is being held by the Jalón Ángel Photographic Archive, which is under the protection of San Jorge University (San Valero Group).
During his 50-year professional career, Ángel Hilario García de Jalón Hueto (1898-1976), popularly known as Jalón Ángel, was one of the most well-known characters in Spanish portrait photography. This highly influential photographer, who has influenced society and individuals greatly, received his initial instruction in Logroño and refined his craft in Lyon and Paris during the early 1900s. He moved to Zaragoza in 1926, where he mixed his most intimate and imaginative studio portraiture with his travel, urban, and natural landscape photography.
His social conscience propelled him to support the San Valero Professional School in 1953, the forerunner of the present San Valero Group, whose mission was to give underprivileged youth and adults access to the workforce by means of training.
This annual prize honours Jalón Ángel’s memory with two categories: Portrait, where he achieved national recognition, and Travel and Traditions, where he focused a great deal of his photography ingenuity and enthusiasm. This year’s edition also includes a new category specifically for cultural heritage.
