If you had to sum up what travel means to you in one photo or memory, what would it be?

For this week’s #PPStandout Instagram challenge, we’re looking for those stories that replay over and over in your head, and those photos/videos you can’t turn away from — anything that stands out. Maybe it’s a pop of color. Maybe it’s witnessing one of the World’s Seven Wonders in person. Perhaps it’s a self-realization learned from the challenges of being on the road….

We’re thrilled to be joined by guest judges @sezgiolgac and @tothewonderblog who can’t wait to see where your entries take us! Check their feeds for inspiration and follow the guidelines below to tell your story.


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, February 6th and 11:59am EST on Sunday, February 11th*.
  2. Tag @passionpassport and #PPStandout in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it).
  3. Take us into the moment with you by sharing what caught your eye or why you keep coming back to this moment in your head.
  4. Check the sample below, get creative, and get going!

*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, February 12th on our Instagram feed based on the guest judges’ scoring of Quality of ImageQuality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

For @passionpassport‘s #PPStandout challenge // In Iceland, our journey took us over snow covered terrains, down winding trails, and through blistering winds. It wasn’t an easy trip, but easy stories aren’t worth telling.
