Put on your snowsuit or swimsuit — your choice! For this week’s #PPWinterEscapes Instagram challenge, we want to know if you embrace or escape winter where you are.

Is it an early morning adventure, where your cold breath leads the way to snow-capped mountain vistas? Or perhaps a warm retreat you’ve discovered amidst a bustling metropolis where you can escape — if only briefly — the blistering wind that finds its way into every corner of the city?

Share and follow the instructions below for your chance to win a 16×16 inch canvas print and a feature on our Instagram feed. We’ll be joined by guest judges @captainmaji and @myalaskanlife who know all about winter in the northern hemisphere.


  1. Post a photo/video that fits this week’s theme and tag #PPWinterEscapes and @passionpassport in your caption.
  2. Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, January, 18th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, January 23rd.*
  3. Include a brief write-up (2-5 sentences) in your caption telling us how your entry relates to the theme and why it’s personally significant to you.
  4. Stay tuned for the potential winner and honorable mentions to be featured on our Instagram account Sunday, January 24th.
    *NOTE: Entries must be posted or reposted from a public account during the challenge period. You cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo/video. Those posted from private accounts and/or posted outside of the challenge period will not be considered eligible.

Reach out to with any questions, good luck and have fun!
