For the second year in a row I've acted as the official volunteer photographer for the Edmonton and Area Corporate Challenge. I always have so much fun working this event that I always try to keep 2 weeks free in the summer so that I can help out.
After 17 days of shooting over 170 Edmonton and Area companies compete in 22 sporting events, I've taken over 6000 photos. Of those, I've published over 800 of them to a gallery on my website.
This year I have a new website connected to proper analytics so I've been able to see just how popular the photos are. I thought I'd share some statistics as the numbers amazed me long before the event was even over. These numbers are still growing but these are the figures from May 27th when the first pictures were published until yesterday, June 12th.
Number of visitors to the gallery: 2,413
Number of page/picture views: 100,207
Number of visits from China: 6
Average pages/pictures per visit: 41.5
Busiest day: May 28th (21,415 page/picture views)
Busiest time of day: 8am to 11am (over one third of all traffic)

The U of A boys sure know how to bring it!
All of the photos from their show were very popular!
Now that the games are done for another year I want to thank the organizers, volunteers, and participants for making my job easy again this year. You all showed amazing dedication and spirit and it was my honour to do what I could to preserve some of these memories for the future.
See you next year!
