Valpy Tro­phy win­ner

Otago Daily Times - - GENERAL -

OTAGO Daily Times sub­ed­i­tor Jan­ice Mur­phy has been named the news­pa­per’s 2017 Valpy Rose­bowl Tro­phy win­ner.

Mrs Mur­phy (63), who grew up in Dunedin, joined the ODT in 1994.

She is a for­mer colum­nist and has filled a va­ri­ety of po­si­tions in the Dunedin news­room.

The award, for ed­i­to­rial ex­cel­lence, is pre­sented an­nu­ally on the an­niver­sary of the Novem­ber 15, 1861, pub­li­ca­tion date of the first is­sue of the ODT, New Zealand’s old­est daily news­pa­per.

The award is named for Judge W.H. Valpy, one of the founders in 1851 of the weekly Otago Wit­ness, which later amal­ga­mated with the ODT.
