In honor of Spring’s official arrival, we’ll be joined by Guest Judges @brandonexplores and @chaiwalla for this week’s PP Instagram Challenge: #PPSpringCleaning!

As an homage to the season’s tradition of airing out everything that’s been dormant since winter, we want you to dust off your cameras and sort through those camera rolls for forgotten travel photo and video gems you’ve been holding on to but just haven’t gotten around to sharing.


One potential winner will receive a 16×16 inch canvas print! In order to enter and be eligible, please follow the guidelines below:



1) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, April 6th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, April 11th. 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 #PPSpringCleaning and @passionpassport in your caption.

3) Also include a write-up in the caption describing what is 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, April 12th, here on and on our Instagram channel.
