The Spring season is always something to look forward to for Rhode Islanders. The last bits of snow finally melt away, the flowers start to bloom, the boats come out of storage, and the PawSox return to McCoy. This year, low temperatures and wet weather put a slight damper on things, but that didn’t stop our agents from capturing some terrific shots for the 2017 RPL Spring Photo Contest.

As always, I would like to thank everyone who made this contest such a success, including all the agents who entered submissions and all of our friends on Facebook who took the time to cast their votes. This year’s Spring Photo Contest was viewed by nearly 6,200 people on Facebook, receiving a total of 327 “Likes.”

The contest was highlighted by a dramatic comeback. Despite falling behind by nearly 20 votes during the early going, our eventual winner stormed back over the weekend to finish with almost 20 more votes than the next closest competitor. As the only entry to receive over 100 votes, I am proud to announce “WaterFire Sunset” taken by Cumberland Sales Associate, Kimberly Horvath as the winner of the 2017 RPL Spring Photo Contest. Kimberly’s photo captured a beautiful sunset reflecting on the water of the Providence River, while showcasing a group of playful ducks in the foreground, as well as the recognizable Providence skyline beyond the river. Also the winner of this year’s RPL Winter Photo Contest, this marks Kimberly’s second consecutive contest win. Congratulations to Kimberly Horvath, who will receive a free property video and website for her winning photo.

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.

Summer in Rhode Island is always a special time of year, attracting flocks of tourists to come and visit our sandy beaches, dine at our seaside restaurants, and cool off with cups of refreshing Del’s Lemonade. The RPL Summer Photo Contest aims to capture the essence of the season through stunning snapshots of some of the state’s most popular destinations.

A well-deserved thank you goes out to all of those who participated in this year’s contest, including everyone who entered a photo, submitted a vote, or shared the contest with their friends and family on social media.

With your help, the contest was a huge success, reaching an audience of over 8,200 people on Facebook while resulting in more than 350 votes. Each of our finalists received over 20 votes, but one particular photo garnered more than 44% of the final tally.

I’m proud to announce that the winning photo for the 2016 RPL Summer Photo Contest is Narragansett Beach Sunset by Narragansett Sales Associate, Dana Zangari. Dana’s photo captured a perfectly-posed seagull surrounded by the breathtaking colors of a Rhode Island summer sunset reflecting off the glossy shore. This photo encapsulates the beauty of the season and earned over 150 votes – more than twice as many as any other finalist. As a result of winning the contest, Dana will receive a free property website and video, while also having her photo displayed on the home page slideshow. Congratulations Dana!
