Samoan medias annual get together

APIA (feb) - Samoan Journalists, Editors, Camera Crew, Advertising Reps and PR officers came together on Friday night to celebrate the beginning of a new working year for the media reps.
Hosted by JAWS, the Media Cocktail was held at the STA Fale after the organisations AGM.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to come together, relax, have fun, share a few jokes about the past year, and anticipate the beginning of another exciting media year for us,” said Ualetenese Papalii Taimalelagi, President of JAWS on Friday.
The Cocktail also featured a short video of photos from the past three years of JAWS activities.
The pictorial display saw the summing up of various workshops, seminars, conferences and other fun activities hosted and organised by JAWS.
“It is great to see that JAWS has been part of so many great activities, that obviously reflects the need of the industry,” says Misa Vicky Lepou , Journalism Lecturer at NUS.
The event ended in the early hours of Saturday morning as once again the President who is the Government Press Secretary, a Samoa Observer Photographer, a RNZI Correspondent and a TV Executive played the guitars and ukulele, singing local songs as the rest of the gathering cheered on.
Only in Samoa, does this happen.
