Triton honored by SPJ

The Triton was named the state’s best Trade/Special Interest Publication in the Society of Professional Journalists’ 20th annual Sunshine State Awards in mid-August.


“I am so proud to be recognized by my professional peers in this way,” Triton Editor Lucy Chabot Reed said. “Usually, these kinds of awards don’t know what to do with us; we’re not a daily or weekly newspaper, and we’re not a glossy magazine. But I’ve always known that we represent our industry better than anyone else, and now SPJ agrees. The whole Triton team is part of this honor.”


The contest was judged on two complete issues, the June and August 2013 editions of The Triton, which included stories about the FPL smokestacks being demolished and the reality behind “Below Deck”. The monthly surveys were about resumes and cameras onboard, and the monthly captains lunches were about breaking into the industry and the best days in yachting. Travel stories in those issues were about Tahiti and the Northwest passage.


The Triton “had several articles that seemed highly interesting to The Triton’s target audience,” the judge said. “The articles on the yachting reality show had a fresh perspective not found elsewhere, and included original reporting with interesting yacht captain interviews. The employment survey seemed quite useful, to those looking for work in the industry now or in the future.”


Other winners in the category included 850 – The Business Magazine of Northwest Florida and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s City & Shore Magazine.

About 120 Florida journalists and guests gathered at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for the awards ceremony. The event was sponsored by SPJ – Florida Pro Chapter and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists – South Florida Chapter.
