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.

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!
