ASOCIACIÓN FOTOGRÁFICA FOTO CINE LA VILA
Since our inception, Photo-Cine La Vila has counted among its primary activities the organization of photographic competitions to promote and disseminate photography culture of photography as art. Although in the beginning were contests for local and county level, in 1980 a National Photography Salon was created, with the aim of increasing the visibility of the group.
This contest was named "National Salon Ciudad de Villajoyosa" and a exclusive bronze trophy of an ancient Roman tower, existing in Villajoyosa Camping Hercules, was designed for winning authors.
The contest enjoyed great success of participation during eleven years (from 1980-1990), receiving the works of more than a hundred photographers and 300 photographs per Salon.
Between 1990 and 2010 were organized editions Hall Matías Devesa, local, provincial and national levels, but in 2011 the club takes up again the National Salon Ciudad de Villajoyosa, whose name we added "Memorial Matthias Devesa".
In 2012, we take the decision to convert it on an International Salon with the patronage of CEF and FIAP, being this its fourth edition.
