Jaime Alekos (Madrid, 1985) is an award-winning freelance journalist and filmmaker.
In 2020 he was nominated to the Goya award for the Best Short Documentary for The European Dream: Serbia, an investigative documentary he produced, wrote, shot and edited about the tortures of Hungarian police to the migrants they catch trying to cross their border.
For the same work, he also received an Award of Excellence in the 75th edition of the Pictures of the Year International Awards, the oldest visual journalism competition in the world, and more than 20 awards in international film festivals.
His coverage of the migration crisis in Europe has been broadcasted in all major Spanish TV channels and his footage of October 1 in Barcelona has been featured by Netflix and the BBC.
During the financial crisis in Spain he specialized in evictions and collaborated in Frágil Equilibrio, winner of the Best Documentary Film award at the Goya Awards 2017.
His work about tauromachy has been exhibited in Spain's National Calcography along with Goya's Tauromachy print series and his investigations about animal abuse in Spain caused an editorial to be written in El País, the highest-circulation daily newspaper in Spain, and have been referenced overseas by The Associated Press, The Guardian, Politico and Fox News, among others.
