Jake Wallis Simons

Jake Wallis Simons is an award-winning journalist, broadcaster and novelist.

He writes a wide range of UK and foreign stories, from investigations and opinion to Sunday supplement articles, with a particular focus on digital. He works mainly for the Telegraph, CNN and the BBC.

Notably, Jake wrote and produced Meet the Settlers, the Telegraphs first major digital documentary. This 13,000-word feature incorporated text, data, video and pictures to tell the story of the Israeli settlers living on the West Bank. It won a European Newspapers Award for digital journalism; was honoured at the Webby Awards; and was shortlisted for the Digital Award at the Press Awards.

This achievement, together with his body of digital work for the Telegraph, led to Jake being shortlisted for the Digital Editorial Individual of the Year at the AOP Awards 2014.
