We’re bringing back an old favorite for this week’s #PPFramedByArchitecure2 Instagram challenge! Composition is crucial in photography and videography. One thing that can direct focus is framing, and nothing does that quite like surrounding architecture — from arches to windows and everything in between.

We’ll be joined by guest judges @demasrusli@ericmueller, and @imclumsypanda who can’t wait to see your entries. Head to their feeds for inspiration, and follow the steps below to share:


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, August 15th and 11:59am EST on Sunday, August 20th;*
  2. Tag @passionpassport and #PPFramedByArchitecture2 in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it);
  3. Tell us a story with your caption: Where were you? What made you pause? What was going through your head in the moment?; and
  4. Check the sample below and get creative with your entries!

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

We’ll announce the winner and honorable mentions Monday, August 21st on our Instagram feed based on the guest judges’ scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.


Silhouette Framed by Office Building in Tokyo, Japan

When I found out that I’d be travelling to Tokyo, I knew right away I’d have to see this place. Having followed a lot of Tokyo-based Instagram accounts, this particular spot kept coming up. The way the colors pop against the dark night is something you won’t soon forget — never thought I could be this obsessed with an office building @passionpassport #PPFramedByArchitecture2
