CEA Content Creator Photo Topic List
Topic List A
Tell your story
How has your personal outlook changed now that you are abroad and have experienced the world? Visually tell the story of your study abroad or internship abroad journey. What you loved, what you learned, what you would recommend, would you do it again?
Slice of Life
Follow multiple people or someone around your city. What are they doing? What do they see? What are they trying, tasting, seeing, feeling? Make sure you catch some action, like walking. The challenge: you cannot take a photo of their face, only behind or beside them.
What were your first thoughts when landing in your new home and settling in your dorm/apartment/homestay? Did you have any “international trip/embarking on a new journey jitters?” Show us your transition into [insert host country] culture?
Favorite Places in [your city]
Show and describe your top 3–5 local places, restaurants, parks, cafes, etc. in your host city that you’d recommend to future students.
Show us the excursions you experience abroad as part of the CEA program. What are you doing? Where are you going? What was the experience like? What did you like most? What impacted you most? The opportunities with this type of post are endless—get creative!
Reflect upon your most memorable/challenging/funny/interesting/etc. cultural barrier situation you’ve experienced in your time abroad thus far, and how you worked your way through it.
Fashion Forward How-To
Show us the culturally appropriate way to dress in your host city and how future students should take this into account when thinking about or packing for their adventure in [host city]. SUGGESTED: "__#__ Things To Pack When You Study Abroad in [CITY]"
