We’re collaborating with guest judges @billycress and @erikhageman who can’t wait to see the stoops, escalators, and grand staircases you’ve come  across on your travels! 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 Tuesday, November 1st and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, November 5th;
  2. Mention @passionpassport and #PPStaircase 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 (sample entry below); and
  4. Stay tuned for the winner and honorable mentions to be announced Monday, November 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 magic of Italy is that even the simplest door can lead to the most beautiful surprises. Escaping the crowded street, I lost myself in this enchanted world apart of high ceilings, reaching arches, and staircases into infinity. / @passionpassport #PPStaircase
