Rhode Island winters are not for the faint at heart. But for those who can brave the cold, a fresh sheet of snow can transform our surroundings into a sparkling wonderland.

Luckily, our agents never shy away from a challenge, enduring the elements each year to capture a strong collection of submissions for our Winter Photo Contest. We’d like thank everyone who participated in this year’s contest, including all of the agents who ventured out into the snow to snap the perfect photo, as well as all of our friends on Facebook who took the time to submit their votes.

It’s a joy to review all of the photo entries as they flood in throughout the season, but, inevitably, we’re faced with the tough task of narrowing the field down to a few select finalists. This year we chose a strong group of five finalists before asking our loyal group of followers on Facebook to decide our winner by “Liking” their favorite photo.

After tallying the votes, it is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2019 RPL Winter Photo Contest is RPL Barrington Sales Associate, Eddie Rayden with his shot of Muscachuck Beach in Barrington. Eddie’s photo featured a young person playing pond hockey on the frozen waters of Muscachuck Beach, lined by tall grass and set against the backdrop of a colorful sunset. The photo received a total of 55 votes, edging out the competition by just 10 Likes. This was Eddie’s second consecutive RPL Photo Contest victory, earning him a free property video and website package compliments of the RPL Marketing Department. Congratulations Eddie!

See the full contest results below.
