Otago Daily Times - - GENERAL -

OTAGO Daily Times re­porter Chris Mor­ris has been named the news­pa­per’s 2018 Valpy Rose­bowl Tro­phy win­ner for his in­ves­tiga­tive re­port­ing in the ODT In­sight Marked by the Cross se­ries.

Mr Mor­ris (38), who grew up in Dunedin, also won the award in 2012 and 2013.

The award, for ed­i­to­rial ex­cel­lence, is pre­sented an­nu­ally on the an­niver­sary of the Novem­ber 15, 1861, pub­li­ca­tion 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.
