Fallas Prizes Winners - Best sculptures 2013
17 March 2013 @ 21:17

 This year the Falla of Covento Jerusalen has recovered it's crown by winning the first prize for the best Falla in the first category. It has always been one of the top contenders year after year but over recent years Nou Campanar has removed it from it's glory. Howeve this year the tables turned after Now Campanr decided to change their style and present a rather "different" style of Fallas, which didn't go down well with all the Judges, none the less they managed to take second prize. Lastly the councils Fallas whihc is positioned in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento has caused a lot of controversy amongst restaurant owners as a "Paella" is depicted in the Falla, which acording to local opinion appears more to be a pizza or "God know what!". As the paella is such an important expression of identity for Valencia and especially as it has recently been awarded it's "Designation of Origin" people were shocked to see a lobster and sausages in the paella along with mushrooms and other ingredients that shouldn't get anywhere near a Paella Valenciano.

These were the winners :

Convento Jerusalen 1st Prize

 

2nd Prize Nou Campanar :
