In his acceptance speech, ‘Phuket Today’ producer Simon J Hand said, “It only takes one person to make a difference, but it takes a team to make a great TV show.”

The event, chaired by Vice Governor Somkiet Sangkaosutthirak and coinciding with National Mass Communication Day, saw a diverse group of well-dressed attendees, which included members of the island’s media as well as Phuket officials and other distinguished guests.
