We have exciting themes for you to choose from:-
Working from home sounds like a dream, but in some ways, it’s better in theory than reality. So, in this theme, you can focus on building Lenses which showcase Your home office, fun backgrounds for online calls, funny lenses for not-so-serious calls, and whatnot. In short make WFH more fun and social as WFH is now the #newnormal.
Real friends are those who stand by you consistently without being critical, and you can be your true self without hesitation. They accept you the way you are. So, this theme is for you to create lenses for people to have fun with their real friends. Create Lenses showcasing your craziness with your real friends.
Snapchat for Real Friends. Feel free to take inspiration and create fun-filled Lenses together.
This theme is for you to come up with innovative Lenses. It can be funny as a clown, or as serious as a nerdy programmer.
You can create cute Lenses to make your look like a puppy, or it could be the Lense which makes your look peppier. Be innovative; your ideas define you.
This theme is focused on any social cause in today’s world. You could come up with Lenses showcase Global Warming, or Water Conservation or even Deforestation. Pick out an area of interest around Social Cause and build eye-opening Lenses to educate people and bring awareness. Get references here
Indian Summers/Summer Holidays are super fun and super hot at the same time. This theme is for you to build Lenses which depict Summer Holidays. You can have a beach with funky beach shades or T-shirts, or something ironic. Think for more innovative ways on how you can spend your Summer Holidays through Snapchat Lenses.
In this theme, you can build fictional worlds that can be traveled through your Snapchat Lenses. These fictional worlds can be about the worlds where robots, flying cars, castles, witches, or wizards belong. Your imagination can be your world, and you can travel to your secret world using Snapchat Lenses.
This theme is for you to build Snapchat Lenses that can simulate the real places across the globe. At this point, when we cannot travel in reality, we can travel virtually. You can build Lenses that are Guided Tours of the seven wonders, or you can take you to Paris, or Rome virtually. The world is your playground. Build lenses for people to travel virtually around the world.
Lenses can make online classes more interactive and allow learners to focus more on practice instead of just theory. Snapchat Lenses enable you to add virtual objects to the real world; this can help students understand the subjects better. Think of innovative ideas on how you can build Lenses that talk about the solar system or maybe the Human Skeleton or any subject that you faced difficulty in learning. Make learning fun using Snapchat Lenses.
