"The Principality Premiership is a vital part of the player pathway, underpinning professional regional rugby in Wales.
"Great strides have been made in recent years, with clubs understanding the need to close the gap between semi-professional and professional rugby and to provide a modern and welcoming environment for supporters."
Alun Wyn Jones, who presented the Best Newcomer award said, "Playing rugby at Premiership level helped me a lot. You learn from the players and coaches around you and develop so much in a short space of time. Scott (Matthews) is a credit to his club Cross Keys and the Principality Premiership. I wish him and the rest of the Wales Under 20 side all the very best for the Junior World Championship in New Zealand."
