Triton honored for excellence

The Triton received a second place award in the category of trade and special interest publications from the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) in June. The annual competition includes print, television, radio, online and other media in the state of Florida.


Winners were announced at the 2012 Sunshine State Awards celebration in Miami Gardens, Fla. on June 23. The annual competition for journalistic achievement includes nearly 60 categories.


“But there are not a lot of award categories for what we do,” Triton Editor Lucy Chabot Reed said. “Our success is due to our content, our great staff, and our dedicated columnists.”


The Triton submitted two issues of the monthly paper for judging.

“They looked at us as a whole,” Reed said. “The judges don’t know us, but they based it on our news, columns, essays, the list goes on.”


In business for eight years, the newspaper is described as “nautical news for captains and crew.” With offices on 17th St. in Ft. Lauderdale, the print and online publication is read by industry professionals around the world.


Reed, with an extensive background in journalism, founded the newspaper with her husband, Publisher David Reed, and has served as its only editor.


“SPJ is ‘the’ professional association for journalists,” Reed said. “I’ve been a member since college, and I am honored to be recognized by my peers.”


The winner of the category of trade and special interest publications was “850”, a lifestyle magazine covering northwest Florida. Other award winners of the Sunshine State Awards include the Miami Herald, Florida Center for Investigative Journalism, Tampa Tribune and Sun-Sentinel.

Reed said The Triton will submit samples again for future competitions.

“First place next year?,” Reed said. “I hope so.”
