Every year, visitors flock from neighboring states to come and view the gorgeous landscapes produced by the Fall season in New England. Whether it’s an afternoon of apple picking, hay rides around the pumpkin patch, or scenic drives through the countryside, Autumn in Rhode Island offers a special experience for everyone.

This year, our agents did a terrific job of encapsulating the season with each and every entry that was submitted to our 2018 Fall Photo Contest. Thank you to all of those who took time out of their busy daily schedules to participate. Without the submissions from our agents and the votes from all of our friends on Facebook, this contest would not be possible.

After enjoying the process of looking over all the wonderful photos that were entered into the contest, we were faced with the unenviable task of narrowing the field down to six finalists. From there, we turned things over to our loyal group of followers on Facebook to select their favorite photo and decide our winner.

It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2018 RPL Fall Photo Contest is RPL Barrington Sales Associate, Eddie Rayden with his shot of Bullock’s Cove in Riverside. Eddie’s photo beautifully captured a bevy of swans swimming in the sparkling waters while surrounded by the glowing fall foliage. The photo received a total of 75 votes, finishing 20 votes ahead of the next closest competitor. This was Eddie’s first time entering the contest, and with the win, he will be rewarded with a free property video and website package compliments of the RPL Marketing Department. Congratulations Eddie!

Summertime in Rhode Island is always a special time of year, when people throughout New England flock to enjoy our beautiful beaches, cool down with an ice cold Del’s lemonade, and dine on lobster rolls, chowder, and clam cakes. The RPL Photo Contest aims to celebrate these Rhode Island summers by highlighting stunning images throughout the state.

A sincere thank you goes out to each of our agents who submitted an entry to the contest, as well as all of our friends on Facebook for casting their votes and helping us decided a winner.

After narrowing the field down to five finalists, the contest reached nearly 6,000 people on Facebook, resulting in over 400 total votes. Entering the weekend with four finalists neck-and-neck, one particular photo finally broke free from the rest of the field and emerged as the overwhelming favorite.

It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2018 RPL Summer Photo Contest is RPL Providence Sales Associate, Rich Epstein with his aerial photo of the Beavertail Lighthouse in Jamestown. Rich’s photo captured a birds eye view of the iconic lighthouse illuminated by the day’s final rays of summer sun. The photo received a total of 137 votes, finishing as the only finalist to top 100 votes. Congratulations to Rich on winning the grand prize of a free property video and website package.

The 2018 RPL Winter Photo Contest results are in! As always, I’d like to start by thanking everyone who made this contest such a success, including each of you who entered submissions and all of our wonderful friends on Facebook who took the time to submit their votes.

Due to your engagement and participation, this was our most successful contest in the 10+ year history of the competition. The contest post reach nearly 7,000 people on Facebook and received a grand total of 651 votes.

Typically, the winner of the contest is the photo that comes closest to, or eclipses 100 votes. However, this season we had three photos receive over 145 votes each! With that said, one photo was eventually able to separate from the pack and capture the crown.

It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2018 RPL Winter Photo Contest is RPL East Greenwich Sales Associate, Stacy Rastelli with her photo of the Coventry Reservoir. Stacy’s photo beautifully captured a trail of snowy footprints crossing over the bridge and disappearing into the distant setting sun on the horizon. Her photo became the contest’s first entry to ever break the 200 vote barrier, receiving a total of 208 votes.
