ePHOTOzine Wins Hitwise Award ePHOTOzine Wins Hitwise UK Top 10 Award for the quarter ending July - September 2008.

ePHOTOzine has ranked number eight in the Entertainment-Photography online industry based on the market share of UK visits it has received for the quarter ending July - September 2008.

The Hitwise UK Top 10 Awards Programme celebrates the most successful UK websites in 160 online industries. As Hitwise reports on the anonymous online usage and search behaviour of more than 8.43 million UK Internet users-the largest online sample of its kind-this unique awards programme recognises excellence in online performance through public popularity.

ePHOTOzine is the UK's leading, award-winning online photography magazine who were the first photo site to lead the way and be ABCE accredited - this means their traffic statistics are fact!

Peter Bargh, MD said, "One of the things that we pride ourselves on is customer support. We are, unlike many web sites, very transparent in our company, so you know the team from administration through to editorial, through to web and advertising. We don't hide behind the site. I'm in touch with the members in the forums daily, and we respond to every email request. We are all passionate about our product, and that clearly shows. We believe this sets us apart and is the reason for our huge traffic - over half a million monthly visitors in fact!"

Peter continued, "One of the most successful strategies from day one has been to develop ePHOTOzine from scratch rather than using the easy option of a template-based system like many of our competitors. While this has meant more financial resource, we have the advantage of being able to implement feature requests from our members as well as develop our own special modules. Over the years we've integrated some brilliant additions such as a versions gallery where visitors can hover over a before & after shot to see the difference. This is a great visual learning tool that no other photography site offers. We've also added a members' meeting section with Google maps and recently added a geo tagging feature to the gallery. This, along with a huge, friendly community and many prizes to be won makes it a unique place to visit and we're very proud to be recognised by this award."

Tracey Johnson, Advertising Director said: "We're delighted to receive yet another award, reinforcing our market-leading position. This should help to further strengthen our brand to our clients and potential advertisers as the vehicle to promote their message to a huge photographic audience. We continue to go from strength to strength and would like to thank all our members and clients for your continued support."
