# Themed Topic 1：Discover China across the World
Under this theme, we are expecting to see how Chinese people, food, architecture or companies integrate with a different culture. If you have observed any impressive Chinese stories outside the country, film them into videos and present us.
# Themed Topic 2：Expats’ Experiences
Expats living in China have brought in fresh ideas and diversified cultures. Share your experience as an expat or the story of other expats living here. The images of foreigners' working, living or traveling in the country are the best presentation of the interactions between China and the rest of the world.
# Themed Topic 3：Town and Country Tour
Every city and village in China has its unique customs, people and historical heritage. This theme zooms in on foreigners' stories with Chinese cities or villages. Their relations and emotional connections with these metropolises or townships are distinctive stories to tell.
