The slightly out of the way location has seen very busy times with many people taking on the test in the POP PIKz POLL with many of the images in the choice spotlight. It will be an interesting result with yet, the regular on-line opportunity to come. The end result to be announced in May.


Yesterday, there was a constant stream of Kids With Cameras registering for this year CAMERA CHALLENGE with young aspirants not only from Australia, but even one from Canada. FF is looking forward to an interesting and scintillating collection of works to go on show in ’17, and vying for the top honors.

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.
