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!

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 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.
