10th Jalón Ángel International Photography Award 2024

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.

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 winners of the awards will be announced on 27 June 2024 through the Jalón Ángel Archive website and social networks. The jury will contact the winners exclusively and will do so by telephone or e-mail. The Archive can organise a physical and/or virtual exhibition that will include the winning photographs and the mentions and/or other participating photographs in their case.
