Passports, Maps and Moments, photo by Zach Glassman, travel inspirationThe theme of our Instagram challenge for the week of May 19th is #passportsmapsandmoments, and this week we’re teaming up with Artifact Uprising!

Think of inspiring and creative ways to capture or convey moments of travel in a photo or video: snapshot a globe or atlas marked where you’ve been or have yet to go, show us your favorite stamps on your passport, or showcase a travel souvenir or photo that brings you back to a special moment abroad. And don’t forget to write a short blurb explaining what’s special or memorable about your entry (note that the winner always has a writeup for their photo).

Two winners will receive $50 gift certificates from Artifact Uprising. The honorable mentions will receive a 20% discount code for Artifact Uprising products.


1) Post a photo or video that fits this week’s theme and tag @passionpassport and #passportsmapsandmoments in your caption so that we don’t miss your entry. Note that you cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo or video — you must post or re-post your entry. You may submit as many entries as you like..

2) Include a short blurb about what was significant about your photo or video.

3) Sign up for our newsletter.

4) Submit your entry between Monday, May 19th and Saturday, May 24th at 11:59pm PST.
