#youbeingyou is all about celebrating what makes you who you are. And this month, for Auckland Pride Festival, we’re joining forces with Westpac NZ, Ernst & Young and Britomart to celebrate diversity and inclusion and inspire all New Zealanders, no matter their age, role, gender, sexuality or race, with the confidence to be themselves. 

Britomart visual display

Throughout February, Westpac NZ will be putting a call out for photos via their social channels to celebrate #youbeingyou then projecting these photos up in lights in Britomart. The display will also be visible online so no matter where you are, you can check it out and it can be viewed around the globe. Watch this space to find out when! 

Want to get involved? Here’s how: 

  1. Take a snap of yourself! It can be a selfie, you taking part in your favourite pastime or you with family and friends – just make sure you have their permission first. 
  2. Post your pic, along with a couple of words about what’s going on in the picture, to any of your social channels using the #youbeingyou hashtag or email youbeingyou@westpac.co.nz before February 20th.
  3. If your photo is chosen, Westpac will comment on your post, DM or email you to let you know. 

Keep an eye out on Westpac’s Facebook page or if you’re around Britomart, the wall above Britomart Country Club to see your photo in action!
