The Garland Princess and the Neon Prince is a short video documentary created as part of the HOTS campaign to raise the level of awareness on the issue of child sex trade and to encourage people to take action and report offenders. In an effort to sensitise the public it explores the many factors that push and pull children into the commercial sex trade and suggests what can be done to protect children from exploitation.

Journey into the child sex trade is an animation produced by HOTS. The artwork and story was produced by street children in Chiang Mai. Their work was then scanned and brought to life with the magic of modern technology. The animation tells the harrowing story of a boy's journey into the commercial sex trade. Local TV stations have screened two versions of this animation.
Public Service Announcements
Public service announcements (PSAs) in Thai, Akha, Lisu, Lahu and Karen languages were produced by HOTS for radio broadcast in Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand. The spots were created with the help of ethnic hill tribe community members in order to ensure that the spots were culturally appropriate and acceptable for each ethnic group. They raise awareness on the issue and also provide contact details about how to report child sex offenders. This medium is most effective for the rural hill tribe communities who get most of their information from the community radio stations. Some of these radio broadcasts can also be received in neighbouring countries.
