How do you have fun in the sun? We’re teaming up with Goal Zero, and the theme of our Instagram challenge for the week of August 4th is: #PPsummersolar! Think of creative and unique ways to show us that solar, summer flare (preferably without looking directly at the sun) in a photo or video: look for bright, brilliant sun rays; show us your favorite tanning spot; or share how you stay energized under the blistering sun.

And don’t forget to tell us about your entry and what makes it special or memorable (note that the winner always has a write-up for their photo).

One winner will receive Sherpa 100 kit. The honorable mentions will receive 40% discount codes.


1) Post a photo or video that fits this week’s theme and tag @passionpassport and #PPsummersolar in your first 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.

2) Include a short blurb about what was significant about your photo or video (check out the previous challenge winners here).

3) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, August 4th and Saturday, August 9th at 11:59pm PST.

4) Winners and honorable mentions will be announced on Sunday, August 10th here on
