ShipServ awards innovation in maritime journalism

In a month when the shipping industry’s bible, Lloyd’s List, is due to go digital-only, it is fair to say that many things have changed in the world of maritime journalism in the last fifty years, but the pursuit for excellence amongst journalists very much remains.

Earlier this week, the Seahorse club, a networking group for maritime PR, marketers and journalists in the shipping and transport industries celebrated its 50th anniversary at its annual maritime journalism awards and ShipServ was delighted to be a sponsor of the inaugural Social Media Journalist of the year award.

Over 150 journalists, maritime PRs and marketers attended the event at the Loose Cannon in London.


Social Media journalism comes in various guises – from crowdsourcing through Facebook, informing and engaging readers through Twitter or starting and debating hot topics through a LinkedIn group – but there is no doubting that social media skills and the ability to have a two-way conversation with both readers and peers is a vital part of the armoury of a modern day journalist.

This year’s award went to Holly Birkett, Editor of Hazardous Cargo Bulletin and a journalist who consistently engages with clients, PR and journalists through various social media profiles making the challenging topic of Hazardous Cargo both appealing and interesting.

The main Seahorse Journalist of the year went to Johanna Parsons of Logistics Manager for a trilogy of articles which showed a great depth of content and research, and which were written in a style most likely to engage the reader.
