About:

The Jalón Ángel Photographic Archive, guarded by the San Jorge University (San Valero Group), organizes 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 in portrait photography in Spain during his 50 years of professional life. This photographer, with great social and human projection, began his earliest training in Logroño and perfected it at the beginning of the 20th century, first in Lyon and, later, in Paris. In 1926 he settled in Zaragoza where he combined his most personal and creative photography, specialized in travel and urban and natural landscape, 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 objective was access to working life thanks to the training of young people and adults without resources.

This award honors the memory of Jalón Ángel with two annual categories: Portrait , a genre in which he stood out nationally, and Travel and Traditions to which he dedicated much of his concern and photographic creativity. In addition, in this call a special category dedicated to Cultural Heritage is added .
