Kapiti News - - News - David Hax­ton

Kather­ine Ma­son from Rau­mati South is the proud owner of a su­per­size im­age of an ele­phant and its young roam­ing freely in the wild.

She won the pic­ture in a com­pe­ti­tion run by Tall Poppy Real Es­tate agent Ricky Bartlett, who has been run­ning a monthly com­pe­ti­tion which started in July and goes un­til Christ­mas.

“The aim of this was to col­lab­o­rate, en­gage with and pro­mote lo­cal busi­nesses.

“So far I have part­nered with Welling­ton Beds, the Ka¯ piti Choco­late Fac­tory and Paula’s Home & Liv­ing, all of who have been gen­er­ous.

“Septem­ber’s com­pe­ti­tion with Paula’s Home & Liv­ing came at a time when they were re­brand­ing so it seemed a great way to cel­e­brate this.

“Paula pro­vided a choice of two amaz­ing pieces of wall art for my Face­book fol­low­ers to choose from.”

Kather­ine was the win­ner and choose the Wild Ele­phant im­age mea­sur­ing 240x120.

“It’s in­cred­i­ble,” she said when see­ing the im­age first­hand on Thurs­day.

“I had no idea it would be such a mag­nif­i­cent piece. I’m very for­tu­nate to have won the com­pe­ti­tion.”

Her par­ents-in-law are in Nairobi on sa­fari “so I’ve been get­ting lots of ele­phant pho­tos”.

“I don’t need to go to Africa now.”

Mr Bartlett said the com­pe­ti­tions were get­ting good cov­er­age and peo­ple seem keen to get in­volved and share with their friends.
