Now in its 10th year of existence, the RPL Photo Contest has always served as the perfect vehicle for capturing the essence of our beautiful state as we enjoy the annual procession of the seasons. The 2017 RPL Winter Photo Contest continued this legacy, as our agents entered a terrific collection of submissions showcasing familiar local destinations covered by a blanket of freshly fallen snow.
As always, I’d like to thank everyone who made this season’s contest such a success, including everyone who entered a submission, each of our six finalists, and most of all, our friends on Facebook who took the time to submit their vote and share the contest with family and friends. With your help, this year’s winter contest was viewed by over 5,000 people, receiving 42 shares and a total of 364 votes.
While all of our finalists deserve praise, two particular photos separated themselves from the pack, each receiving over 115 votes. These two entries kept pace with each other throughout a busy weekend of public voting, but when the dust finally settled and all the votes were tallied, only one would emerge as the winner.
We’re proud to announce that the winner of the 2017 RPL Winter Photo Contest is India Point Sunset by Cumberland Sales Associate Kimberly Horvath. Kimberly’s photo captured snow covered trees and wintery docks set before a radiating pink and orange sunset reflecting off the waters of the Providence Harbor. Congratulations to Kimberly who will receive a free property video and website as her contest prize.

Now that the votes are in and the totals have been tallied, we’re proud to announce the results of the 2016 RPL Fall Photo Contest. Before we do, I’d like to thank everyone who made this season’s contest such a success, including each of our finalists, everyone who entered a submission, and of course all of our friends on Facebook who took the time to submit a vote and share the contest with those they know. With your help, this year’s fall contest reached over 8,000 people on Facebook, receiving 50 shares and a total of 246 votes.
Our photo contests have become increasingly competitive, and this fall season’s was no different. Each of our finalists received at least 30 votes, while a total of just six votes separated our top two entries. Ultimately, after a busy weekend of votes, one photo emerged as the clear champion.
We’re proud to announce that the winner of the 2016 RPL Fall Photo Contest is Providence River Sunset by Cumberland Sales Associate Michael Plante. Michael’s colorful shot captured the vibrant reds, yellows, and blues of a perfect fall sunset reflecting off the waters of the Providence River. After jumping out to an early lead, Michael’s photo withstood a late weekend push from the other competitors to capture the contest with a total of 73 votes. Congratulations to Michael who will receive a free property video and website as his contest prize.
