Fa­mous in your own back­yard

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Ever wanted to be fa­mous in Mata­mata? Well here’s your chance.

The Mata­mata Pub­lic Re­la­tions As­so­ci­a­tion, pro­duc­ers of the Mata­mata Com­mu­nity Di­rec­tory, in­vites the pub­lic to be ‘‘fa­mous in Mata­mata’’ by send­ing in a ‘‘selfie’’ of you and your street ad­dress sign.

The pho­tos will then form the front page of this year’s Mata­mata Com­mu­nity Di­rec­tory.

As­so­ci­a­tion man­ager Sue Whit­ing said it al­ways likes to cre­ate a lo­cal feel for the front cover of the di­rec­tory.

‘‘ A lot of our front cov­ers have been pho­tos of lo­cal events such as the Fes­ti­val of Flow­ers, and the Sculp­ture Sym­po­sium. For the past two years the cover has been the ‘ be­fore and after’ shots of our beau­ti­ful Gate­house.

‘‘This year, it’s time for lots of smil­ing faces and a bit of fun,’’ she said.

Whit­ing sug­gests you line up the fam­ily, in­clud­ing the fam­ily pet, in front of your street sign and take a selfie or ask a friend to take the photo.

The only re­quire­ment is a good dig­i­tal cam­era or smart­phone that will pro­duce a high res­o­lu­tion photo.
