Famous in your own backyard
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.
