ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF FOCUS FORCE FUN FOTO WORKSHOPS WILL MEAN A LIMITED NUMBER OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR  Kids With Cameras. SO BE EARLY! You will be able to register at a big saving for the fun foto workshops.

It was pleasing to go through the loads of inquiries for the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras foto workshop program at this year’s MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW. With so much positive response, it was decided to start asking for registrations for the workshop program throughout 2013 and early 14. Calls for information have come from nearly all states, and as far afield as New Zealand. It is the intention to run workshops there as result of one request wanting to know how they establish the program there. WATCH FOR NEWS ON THIS IN EARLY MAY.

Throughout the month there will be weekly updates on reasons and incentives to join the program. This includes on May 1st when the first of respondents who took fotos at this years garden show go on display on the site. You will be pleased with what you see by the young Kids With Cameras.These will appear each Wednesday throughout May. On Sunday, May 5th, we will publish a review of what the program has achieved for Kids With Cameras the world over.

On the 8th, as well as publishing the second collection of SUPER SHOT finalists we will also announce a second wonderful prize to be won for commitment and dedication to the tasks asked. 2014 will be the second time the JAS AWARD will be awarded, and believe us in 2014, it will be well worth the effort. The last two Wednesdays’s of May will see the publishing of the remaining independent SUPER SHOT submissions for the Rockley Flower Foto Exhibitions at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show,2014.

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
