THE GARDEN SHOWS OVER – & WHAT A SUCCESS!

Standard

A busy year comes to an climatic end with a huge success. Many Kids With Cameras visited the FOCUS FORCE KWC ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION and were inspired by the CHOICES on display for the 2017 awards. Parents were enthusiastic, and numerous KWC and others walked away from the stand sporting their Junior Photographer badges – inspired to look for their own SUPER SHOTS, hopefully to be on the wall in 2018.

These FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras were also excitedly proud to be presented with their certificates and recognitions by the MIFGS Event Director Marcus Gale on the closing day. Marcus again, was impressed by the standard of work by all the young snappers, and congratulated Misha, ROCKLEY OVERALL BEST for 2017, and runner up Nadia on their successes. It has been a big year, and one that will be inspiring for these two, and all those follow in their footsteps down the garden path in 2017. Lets wind it up with one last POST Of PRAISE  for this group, before we start another year.

THE FOCUS FORCE CAMERA CLUES PASSPORT WAS AN EXCITING INTRODUCTION TO THE 2017 ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION.

Loads of the passports were given out during the week providing KWC to take a  photo tour journey, that will be “stamped” with their achievements in capturing SUPER SHOTS. FOCUS FORCE is looking forward to seeing many potential SUPER SHOTS as the KWC take the photo journey that could see them having the thrill of being part of the 2018 ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO AWARDS. In  the comings weeks, FOCUS FORCE expects a multitude of images that will be the beginnings for the exhibition & awards in 2018.

NOW WHO WILL TAKE OUT THE PASSPORT SURPRIZES.

It was an awesome bonus to add the 3 great surprizes to the PASSPORT and encourage the Kids With Cameras on to greater heights. Starting with the FAMILY PASS to the ENCHANTED GARDENS on the Mornington Peninsula, to the other surprise on the peninsula with a FAMILY PASS to DreamWorks exhibition “LIGHTS” on show there for all of April, including the school holidays. And finally, the July school holidays will see one lucky KWC at the FUN4KIDS festival in Warrnambool, staying at the RAGLAN MOTOR INN for two nights.
FOCUS FORCE SAYS THANKS TO ALL THOSE
MADE THE 2017 A WHOPPING SUCCESS.
First of all, it has to be a huge thanks to SURPRIZERS with their wonderful gifts to be won. The ENCHANTED GARDEN, LIGHTS by DREAMWORKS, and the fantastic FUN4KIDS festival and the RAGLAN MOTOR INN for the WONDERFUL WARRNAMBOOL PACKAGE.
Then top of the list is MINUTEMAN PRESS in Latrobe Street Melbourne for all their generous support providing fully professionally prepared printing for the shows signage, pamphlets and pamphlets. That especially includes KIDzPIKz greeting cards and the CAMERA CLUES PASSPORT who brilliant design and help in producing one of FOCUS FORCES greatest concepts. Thanks Nikki. Last, but by no means least is HARVEY NORMAN at the QV CENTRE in Melbourne for providing all the magnificent enlargements.
And leave the very last to the International Marketing Group and the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show for once again hosting the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION. Cant wait for next year!

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.
