Whether you’re an early-riser or night owl, guest judges @j.scud and @robmulally can’t wait to see your slants and slivers of moon and sunlight. Head to their feeds for inspiration, and follow the steps below to share your moments of illumination:


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, April 25th and 11:59am EST on Sunday, April 30th;*
  2. Tag @passionpassport and #PPIllumination in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it);
  3. Take us into the moment with your caption, sharing any backstory, interesting details surrounding the circumstance, and/or how it relates to the theme; 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, May 1st on our Instagram feed based on the guest judges’ scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

When I’m on Lion Rock, I feel like my life is insignificant in a good, beautiful sort of way. It’s an insignificance that makes me conscious of my place in the world — similar to when I look up at the stars on a clear night.@passionpassport #PPIllumination
