KIDz FASHION WEEK SENT VIEWS ON FOCUSFOR THROUGH THE ROOF.

dscn20661  On Wednesday, FOCUS FORCE woke to one of the highest daily scores here on focusfor. The article showing more images by the 2 Junior Official Photographers at the media launch drew an enormous response of view to their work. This shows a diligent effort by all concerned to help the number grow, and of course see a major number viewing the work. A lot of work goes into each publication not ,only including the showing of the KWC talents. This makes it worthwhile for all concerned, and FOCUS FORCE is delighted with the reaction. Now, as the weeks count down to the end of the year, lets keep the numbers piling up.

The introduction of the FRIDAY FAV FOTO has opened the eyes of the Kids With Cameras with an exciting array of images being submitted over the past months. Here, Misha follows in the step of several previous “structural” concepts which is a different direction form many earlier images. Variety is the spice of life – and that certainly is what the KWC are giving us. Hope you like them!

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.
