 WHEN you do something well it’s an honour to have it recognised as these Kids With Cameras who were thanked and congratulated on their achievements in the FOCUS FORCE program. Copies of a number of KIDzPIKz post and greeting cards were sent to the politicians and they responded by sending letters of thank you. Copies of the letters will be sent to those involved for them to put into their book of memories. It is considered to be an honour by these dignitaries to acknowledge the children’s work, and taking the time to accept the gifts; all of which promoting various parts of our vast continent. Well done.

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.
