Instagram on Brooklyn Bridge

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to those in the United States! In honor of MLK, we’re bringing you this week’s PP Instagram Challenge: #PPInspiredBy with Guest Judges @brahmino and @quintner.

This week, we want you to share the ways in which you’re inspired. This can be shooting in the style of someone you admire, taking a portrait of someone who inspires you, or capturing a moment or location that means something special. In your caption, tell us what about the image is meaningful to you, and if it’s a person or their style that has pushed you to capture the image, make sure to mention them as well. 

Enter for the chance to win a 16×16 inch canvas print!



1) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, January 19th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, January 24th. Note that you cannot simply “tag” an older photo/video; you must post or repost during the challenge period.

2) Post a photo/video that fits this week’s theme and tag @passionpassport and #PPInspiredBy in your caption.

3) Also include a brief write-up in the caption describing why you were drawn to this scene and what was personally memorable or significant about your photo/video. Note that the winner always has a write-up for their photo/video (see here for inspiration from the previous challenge winner’s write-up).

4) The potential winner and honorable mentions will be announced on Sunday, January 25th here on and on our Instagram channel.
