Instagram Challenge: #InspirationOutside

There’s something about the outdoors that cultivates a sense of curiosity and creativity. We want to challenge you to get offline, go outside, and be curious.


This week’s @Columbia1938 Instagram challenge is dedicated to sharing your artwork inspired by the outdoors. Your photos will be judged by our friends at She Explores.

She Explores is an online community that was created by Gale Straub as a place for women to share their artwork and stories that are inspired by the outdoors.

Whether you’re a photographer, painter, or outdoor enthusiast, we want to see your artwork and what inspires you. Now, grab your camera and show us what about the outdoors inspires you with #InspirationOutside.


  1. Upload and tag your photos with #InspirationOutside and @columbia1938.
  2. All entries must be submitted between Wednesday, April 11th and Tuesday, April 17th.
  3. Tell us the story behind your photo with a 2 – 3 sentence caption.
  4. We will choose our favorite photo based on the theme, creativity, image quality and storytelling ability, so get creative.
  5. Your photography might get published on the Columbia Sportswear IG and blog!
