RADIO Televisyen Brunei (RTB) held its awards ceremony yesterday which saw employees rewarded for their contribution to the company in 39 categories.

The ceremony – held at the Jerudong Park Amphitheatre – lets local producers and employees share their contributions and accomplishments with the public.

Gracing the biennial event as the guest of honour was Permanent Secretary (Media and Cabinet) at the Prime Minister’s Office Hj Md Rozan Dato Paduka Hj Md Yunos.

RTB Director Hj Md Suffian Hj Bungsu said, “The RTB awards is also envisaged as a generator of motivation and inspiration for employees to continue working and producing local publishing content.”

The awards were further divided into three separate categories – television productions, radio productions and ‘most popular’ awards.

Special awards were also handed out to employees for their dedicated and lengthy service to RTB.

Most notable was Pg Hjh Mariam Pg Metali who received her award for her services to RTB since 1959, serving as a radio and TV announcer.

She also contributed to the formation of the little star singing competition (Pertandingan Bintang Kecil).

“The awards ceremony was not aimed to differentiate the local talents in the sultanate but to (motivate the employees) to continue to strive and improve their quality of work.” said Hj Md Suffian Hj Bungsu.

The RTB awards ceremony was first held in 2001.
