AND talking about REWARD POINTS – NOW HEAR THIS.

REAP A REWARD FOR YOUR POINTS.

I know you have been jumping what it all points to! Well, here’s the news. In November all the REWARD POINTS add up to you having the chance of winning one of THREE PRIZES. First, we have an informative book on photography by Tom Langland. The  second is for  Kids With Cameras aged under 10 years.

MORE NEXT WEEK – and you must register to take part.

ANOTHER  MONTH OF GROWING NUMBERS.

FOCUS  FORCE announced  earlier in the year of the growing number of views on the focusfor site. Well, as you know May was a gigantic month. With only a couple of lapses that  trend continues, and we continue to the 10 thousand mark. We may not make it, but will certainly give  an almighty shove.

NOVEMBER & DECEMBER WILL BE  (CAMERA) CHALLENGING MONTHS FOR Kids With Cameras.

With the  end of the year coming quick than Santa’s annual trip, there’s a sleigh load of foto fun challenges coming up to inspire your photo taking ideas. You can take part in all, or just those you want to get into. There’s more news on these coming soon.

SEPTEMBER SAW FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras BUSY BEHIND THE LENSE.

Those who took up the offer to get into the camera action during the holidays had the honor of wearing the JUNIOR OFFICIAL OTOGRAPHERS BADGE. While five took on the task at Tesselaars Tulip Festival another 2 got their share of fun- n- fotos at the Melbourne Show. You will see the results of these in the next weeks, and more in November. FOCUS FORCE is pleased that these tasks were taken up, and just as much that the results came through. As always thank to the parents who supported their Kids With Cameras and got their Kids With Cameras to the venues.

FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras GAVE US GLIMPSES OF THEIR OVERSEAS ADVENTURES & EXPERIENCES.

First of all Madeleine Puli took on the role of FOCUS FORCE Kids With Camera FRWINDSHIP AMBASSADOR delivering the MELBOURNE – CITY OF CONTRASTS book to the New York School Of The Blessed Sacrament. Then she delivered a copy of the book to the Australian Consulate  in New York. Both of theses commemorated  the last FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITION to the city  10 years ago, in 2014. Then,  Matthew Bory  advised us of his  visit to Cambodia with Mentone Grammar. We  will take a look at a selection of his chosen  best  each WEDNESDAY  in November. We  look forward to sharing others in 2015

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.
