The awards night celebrated the best work by regional Victorian newspapers across journalism, photography, advertising and newspaper excellence.
Ms Duffy, who attended the awards ceremony at Melburne’s RACV Club, said she was thrilled the Review’s work was judged among the state’s best.
“To be recognised in the over 6000 circulation category competing against some major regional newspapers is a fantastic achievement for our small team,” she said.
