Nothing rhymes with orange, nor is it the most popular color in general. This week’s #PPOrange Instagram challenge is all about your sightings of this loud but less than commonplace color — from fireworks (for those celebrating American Independence Day or Canada Day) to mighty sand dunes to actual, edible oranges.

Guest judges are joining in, so check their feeds for inspiration and follow the guidelines below to enter!


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, July 3rd and 11:59am EST on Sunday, July 8th*.

  3. Take us into the moment with you in your caption by sharing 3-4 sentences.

*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.

For @passionpassport‘s #PPOrange challenge // When I visited the Kiyomizu-dera Temple, it was packed with tourists. In fact, I had to dodge large groups and selfie sticks in order to reach this pagoda. Since I often strive to capture iconic sites from unusual angles, I started searching for the right perspective. I quickly found this corner and fell in love with its symmetry, pattern, and color. For a few seconds, as I snapped away, all of the commotion around me disappeared. It’s amazing how nothing else matters when you’re focused on your art.
