Following several days of voting, I am pleased to announce the final results of the 2017 RPL Fall Photo Contest. Before doing so, I would like to thank everyone who made the contest possible, including all of our agents who entered submissions, our wonderful group of finalists, and everyone who took the time to submit their vote and help us with the difficult task of deciding a winner. This year marked the 10th anniversary of our fall contest. We never could’ve have reached this milestone without the help and participation of each of you.
After receiving a large collection of submissions featuring prominent locations throughout Rhode Island, we managed to narrow the contest down to a group of six finalists. Although the finalists each had their own notable qualities, one particular photo separated itself from the rest of the pack, receiving over twice as many votes as any other. I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2017 RPL Fall Photo Contest is “Moffett Mill (circa 1812)” taken by RPL Sales Associate Paula Work. As a recent addition to our Narragansett Office, this was Paula’s first time ever competing in an RPL Photo Contest. She entered several submissions, but her winning photo was quintessential New England, combining the rich history of the region with the essence of the season. As our contest champion, Paula will receive a free website and video package. Congratulations Paula!

The 2017 RPL Summer Photo Contest featured a collection of five evenly matched finalists. In fact, the top four finalists each finished within less than 25 votes of one another. Despite some other photos jumping out to an early lead, one photo steadily gained votes throughout the weekend and eventually overtook all others to emerge with an even 100 votes. I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2017 RPL Summer Photo Contest is “Sailboats on the River” taken by RPL Sales Associate Claudia Maiorana. A member of The Friedman Real Estate Group in our Barrington Office, this was Claudia’s first time ever entering the RPL Photo Contest.
