We want to thank every one of you who entered our RTX Fourth Quarter Photo Contest. We sincerely appreciate you sharing your special family vacation moments, whether they’re on the beach, on a hike in the woods, an excursion on a boat, relaxing in the resort, or just hanging out at dinner.

If you submit photos taken in Hawaii to a photo contest, you’re cheating. Just kidding. But seriously, the place is so photogenic, photos taken there automatically have a leg up on the competition. We’re happy to announce that all five of our finalists in the RTX 2017 Fourth Quarter Photo Contest submitted fantastic captures, but the winners were both vacation photos from Hawaii. These are stunning examples of the iconic imagery you’ll see when you visit this Polynesian escape.

And now, the first and second place finishers in our 2017 Fourth Quarter Photo Contest:

First place: “Mama and Baby Spinner Dolphin,” taken at Vacation Internationale, Papakea, Maui, Hawaii by Christine Latona.

For her first place photo, Christine has won a week at the RTX resort of her choosing.

Second place: “Perfect Morning in Paradise,” Ka’anapali Beach Club Maui, Hawaii by Brenda Good Welborn.

For her second place photo, Brenda has won a complimentary exchange with RTX.

We also want to give a shout out and a special thanks to the winners of all of our previous 2017 photo contests. The wonderful images you submitted are a testament to the fun that can be had on an RTX vacation!
