Kids With Cameras had them clicking away looking for imaginative ideas to photograph, and hopefully find the first images for the 2015 ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION & AWARDS. What a great event it was!
As the show draws to a close on the last day viewers still stopped and spent time studying the ROCKLEY EXHIBITION & AWARD winners displayed in the now famous flower foto garden. Many of them again took the time out to make their choices in the POP PIKz POLL to choose the people’s choice for another year. The top two will be then reproduced in the next collection of KIDzPIKz ROCKLEY greeting cards. But before that decision is made the polling go online from Tuesday April 1. until the 1oth.
The exhibition was at times full to the brim with viewers choosing their favourites in the POP PIKz Poll with many spirited discussions amongst friends as to their choices. What often starts with a little reluctance becomes a concentrated effort in making the right decision. The average time spent doing the job would be ten minutes with some stretching beyond that. FOCUS FORCE considers this to be a wonderful compliment to the Kids With Cameras whose SUPER SHOT works are in the mix.
FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras ROCKLEY AWARD winners visited the exhibition to view their SUPER SHOTS successes on show and bathe in the glory of their recognition. Chelsea Kincade, the 2014 JAS recipient and second place getter in the SINGLE FLOWER category arrived on Saturday. While an overwhelmed and almost speechless Chloe and parents came on Sunday. The young 9 year old is shown here ready to get into more action at the garden show and hopefully like Chelsea put more SUPER SHOTS on the wall in the 20th Anniversary ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION when the Kids With Cameras will celebrate the event being held in the Carlton Gardens. FOCUS FORCE has been part of the event for more than half of those.
2014 saw the introduction of a new game for the FOCUS FORCE Kids Cameras who went out on the search for the VIEW POINTS placed around the Carlton Gardens. The first time this has been an incentive, it was a delight for Phillip, the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras Project Coordinator to hear people coming to the exhibition say that they had seen the signs and were wondering what they were for. Many of the kids With Cameras left the standing wearing their JUNIOR PHOTOGRAPHER badges and firmly holding their first 200 Reward Points. Shown here one of the Junior Photographers takes a firm grip on the idea of looking for VIEW POINTS with the magnificent GREAT HALL in the background.
FOCUS FORCE IS GRATEFUL to the display sites where the VIEW POINTS were planted, and we know will transform into a number of SUPER SHOTS to be seen as part of the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION & AWARDS for 2015. We invite you to check in and see what they have to offer. Here are their sites with our thanks.
