We’re fresh off our Passport to Asia adventure through Hong Kong, Bangkok, Delhi, Siem Reap, and Yangon and now we are curious to see Asia through your eyes! Whether you’ve visited, live there, or dream of going and are saving up for plane tickets, this week’s Instagram Challenge is for you: #PPInspiredByAsia.

From the notorious bustle of Hong Kong to the serenity of Angkor Wat, Asia is a continent rich with culture, history and life. You can find its influence everywhere: from in your tea cup to on your bookshelves, in the clothes you wear and the food you eat. Share what draws you to visit Asia, whether you’ve been yet or not.

We’ll  be joined by guest judges (and PPTA alumni) @charlottehuco, @easternsuns, and @wesleyverhoeve who can’t wait to see your creativity at work.

You could be featured on our Instagram feed and receive a prize package including PPTA swag from Mizu Life, Woolrich, and Clairefontaine. Follow the guidelines below to participate:



  1. Post a photo/video that fits this week’s challenge theme and tag #PPInspiredByAsia and @passionpassport in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it!)*;
  2. Submit as many entries as you like between Tuesday, March 8th and 11:59am ET on Sunday, March 13th*;
  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;
  4. Stay tuned for the potential winner to be announced on Monday, March 14th on our Instagram feed.
    *NOTE: Entries must be posted or reposted 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.
