More NZ Down Under


You will have noticed that since April 2013 there have been New Zealand Pacific covers for Rotary Down Under magazine issues. There has also been an increase in the number of quality projects and events from around NZ and the Pacific featured in our regional magazine. Plus have you noticed that there has been an increasing number of whole-page articles which provide a more readable, 'fresher' look for the magazine?

To answer the question as to how your achievement, project or event can feature on an RDU magazine cover, you need to submit your newsworthy article along with a selection of separately attached action photos with captions to berylrobinson@rotarydownunder.co.nz, plus it’s important that the best photo is eye-catching and memorable! Have a read of the other ideas, suggestions and specifications at www.powerfulstories.rotarysouthpacific.org which can be used to enhance all of your club’s publicity activities.

Remember to use RDU magazine as a promotional tool to attract new members and other supporters of your club.
