2014 IS NIGH – AND SO ARE 5000 VIEWS.

Standard


The sun is about to dip into the horizon, and a new year and era dawn. With January will come the gaining of the 5000th view of the site. Not a lot by many others standards, but for the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras something to shout about, and BEAT BIG TIME in 2014.  What we are really thrilled about is that for the third year running we have beaten the previous numbers. And that’s a big deal for the    FOCU S FORCE Kids With Cameras.    

Once again we feature the sunsetting over he Darling River as our farewell image for 2013. Goodbye ’13 Hello ’14! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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.
