WHat a great year it has been for the FOCUS FORCE Kids with Cameras.– ONLY 2 WEEKS TO GO IN DECEMBER FOR FRIDAY FAV FOTOS!ff16-portnshotsf1ff16-portnshotsf1.With Spring about to disappear with November next week, and Summer on the horizon; the year of ’16 will disappear with the end of December. That leaves only two weeks of December left for FRIDAY FAV FOTOS for this year. But before they appear, old faithful Stacey springs one last image for consideration this month. The waters of Portland bay by night create a moody image with a multitude of light effects. Hope you like it, and find it worthy of a POST Of PRAISE.

THE 2017 FOCUS FORCE KWC SUPER SHOT SHOWCASE CALENDAR IS SOON WITH THE PRINTER.

We have been busy over the last week formulating the 2017 calendar with the final selection of SUPER SHOT works. The task has not been easy, and those that have works included will be puffing their chest out with pride. FOCUS FORCE is proud of the talented submissions by the Kids With Cameras. FOCUS FORCE is also grateful for the support of all those that have purchased copies, not only for themselves, but also as gifts for others. This is the second year of the product, and like the KIDzPIKz greeting cards produced for the ROCKLEY AWARDS will become an entrenched recognition of KWC achievements.

  ON SUNDAY; RELIVE McHAPPY DAY BY SHARING VICTORIA B’S PHOTOGRAPHIC RECOLLECTIONS OF THE DAY.

Two weeks ago, it was all hands on deck to help raise well- deserved dollars for the RONALD McDONALD HOUSES. Victoria B had her hands full grabbing loads of shots at the ALTONA McDONALD’S restaurant. And she did FOCUS FORCE proud coming back with her camera loaded of images to reflect on the day. Her review will appear on focusfor.wordpress.com on Sunday. Make sure you drop by to see what she saw. By the way, she will be the first recipient of the FOCUS FORCE COMMUNITY CERTIFICATE for her coverage.

THE FINAL REWARD POINTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON DECEMBER 16TH.

CONGRATULATIONS TO FOCUS FORCE CHOICE-MAKER ON THE PUBLICATION OF HER BOOK – “THE SIX SEASON’S OF MY BACKYARD”.

Heidelberg photographer Leanne Cole, is not only a respected FOCUS FORCE KWC CHOICE-MAKER , she is dedicated to her art and spreading her knowledge amongst other enthusiasts. She has just had her first book published covering the seasons of the Banyule area. This is quite a milestone, and achievement in anyone’s book, and to be subsidized with a grant from the Banyule council makes it another feather in her hat. We wish her all the luck with sales of the new release just in time for Christmas giving. Congratulations Leanne.

NEXT WEEK WE PUBLISH THE CHOICE’S FOR FOCUS FORCE’S CHRISTMAS CARD & MESSAGE.

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.
