How does your media product represent particular social groups? • My magazine mostly represents teenagers and young adults The images include teenagers, mostly female, and young artists are featured in the contents • There is no sub culture represented in my magazine Sub cultures such as goths/emos aren’t usually fans of pop music

  • 5. 3. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? I think a media institution such as IPC Media would be an appropriate choice of publisher for my magazine. This is because it already publishes some music magazines: • NME • Uncut
  • 6. This means IPC Media has experience in targeting an audience for a music magazine, but the only musical sub genres it publishes are Rock and Indie. Therefore IPC Media would be a good publisher for my magazine as there is room for it to publish a Pop magazine, like mine, without creating competition for itself. 3.

  • 9. They would be of a middle to upper middle class, so that they are able to afford the magazine and other things such as music festivals, concerts and artist merchandise. I have advertised things like this on my cover and contents page. 4. Who would the audience be for your media product?
