The Jorge Alió Foundation chooses culture and art as a way of raising society’s awareness and stimulating its support for the prevention of blindness.

With the goal of transmitting this important message, the National Miradas art contest is created in 1998. Very soon it attracted the attention of other countries, starting in America with the Miradas of Latin America in (2004 ) and now promoting to worldwide projection with Miradas international in 2016.

Now, countries from all over the world participate in it aiming for the same message.

The Miradas art contest was created in 1998 as part of the cultural and social activities organized on the occasion of the 74th Congress of the Spanish Society of Ophthalmology ALICANTE SEO '98 where the I National Miradas Painting Contest took place. From which the idea arose of holding a biennial event, open to all artistic forms interpreting the main theme of the congress: The Glance and Vision with the principal aim of drawing the attention of both artists and society to raise awareness of the importance of visual care and prevention of blindness through art.

The contest "Miradas of Latin America" created in 2004 constitutes a meeting platform between science and art, developing an initiative for communication from the medical profession with fellow countries which helps to explain the importance of vision for the human being.

The I Miradas of Latin America contest joined countries like Argentina , Colombia , Mexico, Dominican Republic, Uruguay , Ecuador and Venezuela, Brazil, Chile and Peru.

The "International Miradas" contest includes now other countries from different continents and the artists can also participate with artworks that deal with the message of Miradas and pursue to attract the attention of the society toward Ophthalmology and the relevance of Vision.

In this first edition of Miradas International, 22 countries from worldwide are participating, which, through their own organization create their own contest to select the artworks that will participate in the international event. The selection of the paintings and the Miradas International Award is performed by the juries of these different countries, which will vote each one independently to select the winning artwork.

The award of the VII International Miradas Art Contest was $ 4,000 sponsored by Schwind EyeTech Solutions.

The award of the VIII International Miradas Art Contest also had an amount of $ 4,000 and was sponsored by OPHTEC.

The award of the IX International Miradas Art Contest has an amount of $ 4,000 and is sponsored by OPHTEC.

The name of the artist and the winning artwork of the country will be announced during the meeting of the Annual Congress of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and shall remain in the ophthalmology center of the country that presented the art work.

Since (2005), the art of Miradas illustrate the cover page of the Journal of Refractive Surgery and also it has been displayed as the cover page of several Ophthalmology books, Congress announcements and other scientific activities that reflect this fusion between Vision and Art.

After several years of artistic activity in his home town he moved to Córdoba, Argentina in 2002 to start the Art School of the National University, where he currently lives and works. He has had collective and individual exhibitions in cities of Argentina, USA and Spain.

In this year’s edition of Miradas International, a total of 22 countries have participated represented by 42 artworks of recognized quality and highly varied techniques ranging from the oil on canvas of the winning artwork to soluble lead, diorama and colored porcelain to mention just some.
