Times, Florida Trend win national journalism awards for features, graphics and investigative work

Tampa Bay Times journalists won national awards for feature writing and informational graphics this week in a contest run by the Society of Professional Journalists.

Florida Trend, a business magazine published by the Times Publishing Co., also won top honors in the contest.

The SPJ announced Tuesday that Times staff writer Kelley Benham won the Sigma Delta Chi award for feature writing.

Benham's series, "Never Let Go," told the story of her premature baby's survival and also was a Pulitzer Prize finalist this year.

The Times also won the informational graphics category, for a special project called "Conventional Wisdom."

The newspaper created the project last fall to tell the story of the 2012 Republican National Convention in a graphic series. Honored for the project were news artists Don Morris and Steve Madden, multimedia designer Lee Glynn and former Times staff member Darla Cameron, now at the Washington Post.

Florida Trend journalist Lilly Rockwell won the regional magazine investigative reporting category.

Rockwell's piece, "Crime, no punishment," dissected the massive problem the state has with Medicaid fraud, and how for decades, authorities have not been able to stop it.
