But, dedicated to the cause just like the Kids With Cameras the decisions have been made and the results revealed next Wednesday on the opening of the 2016 MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW. Who will they be?

Images from last show to others from Portland in Victoria’s west to a small collection from the Northern Territories Darwin will adorn the walls of the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION. These cards have become a tradition for the FOCUS FORCE with the Kids With Cameras enjoying the prestige of seeing their works reproduced in this format.

From several hundred images making the cut for the SUPER SHOT selection, those that make grade to go to the CHOICEMAKERS for the final top finishes in the categories. Then, of course there will be the OVERALL BEST. The question who will be the wearer of the cap for the CAPTAIN’S CHOICE, not to forget the Premiers, the Education Ministers and the Hon.

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.
