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!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s RPL Fall Photo Contest such a success. This includes all of those who entered submissions, casted votes, or shared the contest with their friends and family. Thanks to our friends on Facebook, this year’s contest received 62 shares and reached nearly 6,000 people.

Fall is always a special time in New England and our agents did a terrific job capturing the essence of the season with scenic images from throughout our wonderful state. After completing the always difficult task of narrowing our submissions down to a group of five finalists, we asked our friends on Facebook to help decide the winner. Never letting us down, our Facebook friends responded with a total of 233 votes over just five days.

When the dust cleared and the votes were tallied, one photo emerged as the clear victor. I am proud to announce that the winning shot for the 2015 Fall Photo Contest is East Greenwich Harbor by RPL Sales Associate Michelle Snoeren. Michelle’s shot garnered nearly 40% of the vote, receiving a total of 92 “likes.” Congratulations to Michelle who will receive a free video and website package and will also have her photo appear on the homepage slideshow on, recently ranked as one of the top 25 real estate websites in the country.

Below are the complete contest results for each of the five finalists.
