MULTI CHOOSERS – MULTI CHOICES FOR THE CITY OF CONTRASTS.

Standard

The decisions have been made by the largest assembly of judges for any FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras. And how appropriate for such a collection of superb images of the city of Melbourne – today and yesterday. The forum included Tiffany’s Store Director Kerry Davies . A former FOCUS FORCE ROCKLEY winner; Wil Cutler, regular judge of many projects Tony Pi, a full time professional photographer, School Deputy Principal Rib Klemm a long time supporter of the FF KWC projects and a media enthusiast. another primary teacher and deputy principal Denise Kelly, currently studying media and photography at Uni. Denise Mugavin a primary school principal who made the CHOICE on behalf of the Melbourne Lord Mayor. What a formidable line up.

THE NAMES OF THE CHOICES will be announced at a presentation morning at COLLINS PLACE on the corner of Collins and Exhibition St’s  in Melbourne on Sunday, August 10 with all participants attending and where they will view all the current works and stand proud for the accolades of the CHOICES. If you supported any of them with a POST of PRAISE you are welcome to attend also and join in the success story of them.

THE CHOICE FOR THE HARVEY NORMAN ENCOURAGEMENT will also be announced.

THE FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP ALBUM for the SCHOOL OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT due to the tireless determination of Denise Mugavin the job has been done. We will be looking forward to seeing the final outcome of this gift for the students of the New York school. Also you will be able to purchase your own copy as a memento of the event, and support the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras.

A SELECTION OF KIDzPIKz postcards hopefully will be also be produced in time for Madeleine to take with her to New York to present as a gift of friendship q]and goodwill to the children there. You can also purchase these, and we will be creating a special pack for purchasers with another one to be given in your name.

AND NOW THANKS FOR SUPPORTING THE FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras in their mission to find MELBOURNE’S CITY of CONTRASTS.

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.
