It’s important now more than ever to come together as citizens of the world and rejoice in our shared commonalities as well as our differences. Share something unique about which your home country and the teams you’ll be cheering for. If you’ve been to Rio or another city that’s hosted the Olympics, share a snapshot. Or Tell us about a time you broke down a cultural barrier.

We’re joined by guest judges @missjetsetter and @sezgiolgac! 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 Monday, August 1st and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, August 6th;
  2. Mention #PPOneWorld and @passionpassport 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, August 7th 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.

The chaos is astounding as millions of people depart the Bishwa Itjema with every inch of train occupied by a passenger. Yet despite the crush of people, cooperation remains the defining characteristic of the crowd. / @passionpassport #PPOneWorld
