Otago Daily Times reporter Vaughan Elder has been named the newspaper’s 2016 Valpy Rosebowl Trophy winner.
Mr Elder (30), who was born and raised in Dunedin, joined the ODT in 2012 after stints with The Star, Dunedin’s community newspaper, and the New Zealand Press Association in Wellington.
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.
