Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo violet or classic black and white…this week’s Instagram challenge is all about the #PPMonochrome scenes you’ve come across on your adventures and travels!

From urban landscapes of city slate to rolling hills of green, guest judges @aneeshkothari and @yellowillow can’t wait to see your gradient hues. Head to their feeds for inspiration, and follow the steps below to share your palette:


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, April 18th and 11:59am EST on Sunday, April 23rd;*
  2. Tag @passionpassport and #PPMonochrome 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, April 24th on our Instagram feed based on the guest judges’ scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.


Snow in Reykjavic, Iceland

This night was one of the most intense snowfalls I’ve experienced. We literally got 30-40cm (15in) of snow in a few hours. I woke up at 3am from the sound of some trees breaking in my backyard, so I decided to get out and take some photos…. / @passionpassport #PPMonochrome
