Scope and content

Series consists of photographs from the Torch Relay, which took place from Oct. 30, 2009 to Feb. 12, 2010, as well as photographs from related events immediately prior to the relay, including the lighting ceremony (and rehearsals for the ceremony) in Olympia Greece on Oct. 22, 2009.

The images in this series were selected by VANOC staff/contractors from the daily images taken by the photographers assigned to cover the relay. VANOC organized the images into four groups - one for VANOCs own use, and three for distribution to the relay's corporate and government sponsors: Coca-Cola, Royal Bank of Canada, and the Government of Canada. As such, this series has been organized into three sub-series to reflect these groupings:

S08-1 Coca-Cola Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights
S08-2 Royal Bank of Canada Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights
S08-3 VANOC and Government of Canada Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights

The content of the VANOC image set and the Government of Canada image set were found to be identical in content and organization, so only one set was retained, and assigned to a single sub-series.

Arrangement

Photographs from the Torch Relay were received from VANOC on a 2TB detachable hard drive. Photographs taken during the relay were saved onto this drive by contractor Image Media Farm. The images on the hdd were organized into directories based on the day the image was taken, as well as an additional top-level directory titled 'HIGHLIGHT Deliverables'. Each day-numbered directory was further divided into sub-directories as shown in the example below:

|--Day 0 Oct 29 Handover Ceremony
|--Day 00 Oct 20_Oct 21 Lighting Ceremony
|--Day 1 Oct 30
|--Day 2 Oct 31

From this structure, the Archives arranged the various torch relay images into three series:
S07 - Olympic Torch Relay - torchbearer photographs
S08 - Olympic Torch Relay - highlight photographs
S09 - Olympic Torch Relay - source photographs
