We’re collaborating with guest judges @gabscanu and @thererumnatura who can’t wait to dive into your entries of running rivers, placid lakes, and adventure-filled oceans! 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, October 11th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, October 15th;
  2. Mention @passionpassport and #PPByTheWater 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 why it’s personally significant to you (again, if in the comments, we may miss it); and
  4. Stay tuned for the winner and honorable mentions to be announced Sunday, October 16th 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.

I met this fisherman and was lucky to join him on his boat while he went out on the lake. Watching him cast his nets, there was a feeling of poetry in motion. /@passionpassport #PPByTheWater
