Rotary Zones 33/34 Social Media
- Provide creative and meaningful content to districts, clubs and members within Zones 33/34 (and beyond)
- Increase the reach and impact to districts, clubs and members across Zones 33/34 (and beyond)
- Ensure adequate and appropriate opportunities for exchange and engagement with districts, clubs and members across Zones 33/34 (and beyond)
To help promote and drive the efforts of the Zones 33/34 Social Media Team and achieve its goals, each of the 31 districts is asked to name a District Champion – a member of the district who will advocate better engagement with Zones 33/34 social media among respective clubs and members.
Ideally, a District Champion should be the current (or immediate past or incoming) District Public Image Chair; however, another current member of a District Public Image Committee or District Leadership Team (e.g. District Secretary, District Membership Chair, District Community Service Chair, etc.) can also serve in the role.
ROLE OF A DISTRICT CHAMPION
- District Champions will actively promote and be advocates specifically for Zones 33/34 social media channels and website, as well as, for Zones 33/34 Public Image in general
- District Champions will inform, update and follow-up with clubs on relevant activities (including specific tasks, opportunities, events, and challenges) issued by Zones 33/34 Social Media Team (and/or Zones 33/34 Public Image Teams)
- District Champions will receive monthly to bi-monthly updates and requests from the Zones 33/34 Social Media Team speaking to specific tasks and goals to be accomplished in each district and among clubs and members
- District Champions will collectively meet with the Zones 33/34 Team on a quarterly basis at scheduled dates/times to exchange updates and review progress
2023 Social Media Cover Art Competition
Zones 33/34 are committed to making sure that members and clubs are not only engaged by the various social media channels (listed above), but also, that they feel a sense of investment, ownership and pride and are motivated to explore content from these channels for themselves and share content with a wider audience.
So for the 1st half of the 2023-2024 Rotary year, Zones 33/34 introduces its Social Media Cover Art Competition.
This activity calls on Rotary and Rotaract members from Zones 33/34 to create and submit original/bespoke designs of cover art imagery that best identify and represent our Zones, our members, our story and our impact. Submissions will be shared across the Zones for persons to view, like and share where the winning submission will be used on Zones 33/34 social media channels.
- Only members from Rotary and Rotaract clubs in Zones 33/34 can enter this competition
- Entries must be submitted via the Social Media Cover Art Competition Form and must be received by 30th of November 2023
- Entries must follow submission criteria (those that do not follow criteria will not be considered)
- A member may submit multiple designs, but only, one at a time using the submission form
- Entries will be posted to one or more Zones 33/34 social media channels (entries should not be posted elsewhere online)
- Posted entries (and/or links to such) may be shared online via websites, other social media channels, email, chat groups, etc. (once the original post, the link to and source of such are maintained and not altered in any way)
- Anyone (members, friends, family, colleagues, public) may like posted entries
- Winning submissions are chosen based on number of likes, as well as, on Zones 33/34 Social Media Team’s evaluation and judgement.
- Winning submissions will be announced on or before 15th December 2023 where all rights and ownership to winning designs are provided to Zones 33/34 and relinquished by the respective member
- Winning members, as well as, their respective clubs will each receive formal certificates from Zones 33/34 and Foundation Recognition Points…not to mention epic bragging rights!
