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!

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!
