DECEMBER 17 was a more auspicious date than FOCUS FORCE imagined before the sun rose.IN JUNE THE NUMBER OF VIEWERS WERE MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND AHEAD OF THE PREVIOUS YEAR . Then the tally began to dwindle and dribble in. ALL OF SUDDEN THE LEAD CONTINUED TO VANISH, AND THE CHANCE OF NOT EVEN MATCHING 2012 began to become a reality. Well, today that became a non event, and we passed the old numbers, and they now continue to grow. Whatever, the end result we have reached the goal, and we thank all those that have followed the path and adventures of the focus force kids with cameras. We look foward to be writing this story again next year, with larger than life figures. Again, thanks from the FOCUS FORCE kids with cameras to those who have logged, and continue to follow. 


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.
