WOW .. nice to be be considered a trailblazer. Many years ago, FOCUS FORCE coined the phrase “WOW-POWER”, used to describe a SUPER SHOT. Now, its fascinating to be used by a renowned Australian photographer, with a subtle change to the WOW FACTOR. FOCUS FORCE used inj the context bof a viewer looking at an image and going into excitement exclaiming the phrase WOW!. Not suggesting anyone has hijacked, rather saying nothing is new.


The seven year old is the first to claim her 10,ooo REWARD POINTS and will now start working to converting them to REWARD POINTS. As you have read over past weeks they can be traded for prizes from the TREASURE CHEST as  they grow. But, just as importantly they will take Lauren and others who accept them on a learning path that will  widen her camera and photographic knowledge. Also at the same time sharing in new found life skills and experiences.

LAST DAY TOMORROW for the first CREDIT POINT RECIPIENTS to register their claims. On Sunday, they will be withdrawn and a second round released. And on September’s first weekend more exciting SURPRIZES will be added to the TREASURE CHEST. And the only way to be in the running is by registering. So, don’t delay!


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.
