With the upcoming holiday season in mind, this week’s Instagram challenge is all about #PPBrightLights! Whether daylight is waxing or waning in your part of the world, we can’t wait to see the festival lanterns, city lights, and sunbeams you’ve come across on your travels and at home.

We’re collaborating with guest judges @ilchiaroscuro_, @thedennisli, and @tobishinobi, so head to their feeds for inspiration, and follow the instructions below for a chance to be featured on our Instagram feed:


  1. Post as many photos/videos relating to the theme as you like between Tuesday, December 20th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, December 24th;
  2. Mention @passionpassport and #PPBrightLights in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it);
  3. Include a brief write-up (3-5 sentences) in your caption telling us how your entry relates to the theme and any interesting backstory into the moment; and
  4. Stay tuned for the winner and honorable mentions to be announced Monday, December 26th on our Instagram feed based on guest judges’ scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

*NOTE: Entries must be posted or re-posted from a public account during the challenge period. You cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo/video. Those posted from private accounts and/or posted outside of the challenge period will NOT be considered eligible.

What jumps out at me is the sheer size and scale of the city and how it seemingly converges into this singular point. There’s something reminiscent of the body’s circulatory system here, and it makes me think about how the roads serve the city in the same way. / @passionpassport #PPBrightLights
