As winter goes on we are craving the sun more and more, and we are therefore very excited to be teaming up with @onia__ for this week’s Instagram Challenge, #PPEscapetoWarmth. We’ll be giving away $1000 worth of swim gear to the winner!

Even though the seasons are very gradually shifting from winter to spring, sunny beach-going weather still seems a distance away. If you’re like us, you’ve been dreaming of warm beaches and summery exploration in an effort to melt away the frosty winter. Slip on some sandals, wander to the ocean, and brighten the gray of winter by sending us photos of the warm places you would like to be right now. We can’t wait to see your favorite warm adventures!

Follow the contest guidelines below for your chance to win a $1,000 worth of @onia__ clothing.



1) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, March 9th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, March 14th. 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 #PPEscapetoWarmth in your caption.

3) Also include a brief write-up in the caption describing why this warm escape captured your eye 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 winners’ write-ups).

4) The potential winner and honorable mentions will be announced on Sunday, March 15th, here on and on our Instagram channel.
