OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMonday at 11 am, the country and much of the world stops to remember the fallen once more. Take a moment to capture a glimpse through your lens.


The time in Eastern states of Australia at 11 am will really be 12 noon (Daylight saving) when the sun passes over the roof of The Shrine Of Remembrance creating a shaft of light to stream down into the vault. It is three years since the above image was taken by FOCUS FORCE KWC Junior Official Photographer Benjamin Daniels. While there is no official JOP out on the assignment this year, many cameras will be clicking their memories of this solemn moment. You are welcome to send your submissions for SUPER SHOT assessment.

When the sun rises over the beaches of Gallipoli on April 25, 2015, a century after the devastating and ill-fated landing by the allies, it is a goal that a FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras contingent might be there to share the moment. This will depend on enthusiasm by a small group and their commitment to be part of it. EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST will be opened in early 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.
