As the final days of summer tick away, it makes me truly appreciate the amazing job our agents did capturing the season within all the beautiful images submitted to our photo contest this year. From the beach, to the city, and everywhere in between, I was able to get a glimpse at what summertime in Rhode Island means to each of the Realtors® who participated in this contest.

As always, I’d like thank everyone who took the time and effort into submitting an entry, as well as all of our clients and friends on Facebook who helped us with the difficult task of selecting a winner by casting their votes. Your participation is what makes this contest possible and is the main reason for its success over the past 10 years.

As for the results, we entered the weekend with two finalists battling for the top spot, coming down the final stretch neck-and-neck. Despite a third challenger making a late charge, one photo pulled away to emerge as the clear winner. I am proud to announce RPL Providence Sales Associate Ashley Baccari as our 2019 Summer Photo Contest champion with her gorgeous shot of the Creative Capital’s new pedestrian bridge. Ashley’s photo transports us into the shoes of someone leaning on the railing of the newly constructed bridge while enjoying the view of the iconic Providence skyline as the summer sun begins to set on another day. This stunning shot received a total of 97 votes, which was 42 more votes than the next closest competitor. Congratulations to Ashley on her winning photo. We are proud to present her with the first place prize of a free video and website package from the RPL Marketing & Technology Department.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2017 RPL Summer Photo Contest and helped make it such a success. Thank you to all of our agents who took the time out of their busy schedules to take photos and enter submissions. Thank you to all of our friends on Facebook for reviewing our finalists and casting their votes. And thank you to everyone who shared the contest album with their friends and family. As a result of your participation, this year’s summer photo contest reached over 5,300 people on social media and introduced our page to a wide audience of new followers.

The 2017 RPL Summer Photo Contest featured a collection of five evenly matched finalists. In fact, the top four finalists each finished within less than 25 votes of one another. Despite some other photos jumping out to an early lead, one photo steadily gained votes throughout the weekend and eventually overtook all others to emerge with an even 100 votes. I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2017 RPL Summer Photo Contest is “Sailboats on the River” taken by RPL Sales Associate Claudia Maiorana. A member of The Friedman Real Estate Group in our Barrington Office, this was Claudia’s first time ever entering the RPL Photo Contest. With her win, Claudia will receive a free website and video package. Congratulations Claudia!
