This Thursday marks the Lunar New Year, so we’re launching this week’s PP Instagram Challenge #PPLunarNewYear along with Guest Judges @edwardkb and @lielaine who will be helping us celebrate!


We want you to show your creativity and share photos of Lunar New Year’s celebrations and festivities, animals from the lunar calendar (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, pig), or any aspect of lunar festivities and culture in your city.



1) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, February 16th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, February 21st. 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 #PPLunarNewYear 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, February 22nd, here on www.passionpassport.com and on our Instagram channel.
