So we’ve announced the winner of our Round VI Bucket List Initiative, but we still want to hear about your wanderlust: past, present, and future. Sprawl out an atlas, spin a globe, or open a compass and join us for this week’s Instagram challenge #PPMapsNCompasses!

We’ll be joined by guest judge @courtney_tess, @globemakers and @ovunno, so get creative: pin cities you’ve visited, color in your bucket list destinations, or simply portrait your atlas/globe/map with your travel essentials.  Ranging in color, shape, and size, the variety of maps are endless; and we want you pay homage and show your love for these seemingly mundane but vital tools for travel.


One winner will receive a 16×16 inch canvas print, so follow the guidelines below in order to be eligible!



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

2) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, July 6th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, July 11th. Note that you must post or repost during the challenge period; you cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo/video.

3) Include a brief write-up in your caption describing what is personally memorable or significant about your photo/video (see here for inspiration from the previous challenge winner’s write-up).

4) Stay tuned for the potential winner to be announced on Sunday, July 12th here on
