My role documented arrivals at each venue on the rally weekends, uploading with a brief outline of the days events to the projects live photo blog, each shot uploaded with relevant search engine optimisation information created to help raise awareness for the Read Literacy Project. Viewing figures for the blog were fantastic and enabled pupils and participates to re live their favourite moments online. Here are sets of shots from two of them.
