Photo Topic List


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.

For Example



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.

CEA Excursions

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!

Culture Shock

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]"

Learning from the Locals

Craft a post about the most interesting, influential, or memorable local you have met and why you feel this way about this local individual. Show them in their natural element and what makes them quintessentially [host culture]. 

Other Topic Ideas
  • Art abroad: Museums, street art, graffiti, etc.
  • Navigating public transportation (or your host city in general)
  • Making friends with international students
  • Student life in your host city
  • Life in a homestay
  • Making CEA housing feel like home
  • Tips to stay physically and mentally healthy abroad
  • Have a creative idea that isn’t listed? Please submit to your CEA contact via e-mail for approval. 
Academics & Classes

What are your classes like? What’s it like going to school in another country and how does it compare you school at home? Was it easy to adjust? What are you studying and how does it benefit your degree to be studying there?

CEA Cultural Engagement Activities

Is your CEA group learning how to make pasta together? Or maybe your CEA staff is leading a walking tour of your city’s best street art. Whatever the CEA activity is, share what it was like to participate in local activities! What are you doing? Where are you going? What did you like most? What impacted you most? 

CEA On-site Suggestions

Your CEA on-site team may suggest topics they need help covering.

Create Your Own Walking Tour
Create your own walking tour  by taking photos of places around your host city, including places to stop and see, restaurants to try, museums to tour, etc., along the way

Have a different idea?
Let me know beforehand and I’ll consider it for approval.
