Magazine Evaluation What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
The genre of my magazine is indie. During my research I looked into magazine such as NME and Kerrang! These magazines were my biggest influence. NME was distributed by IPC Media And Kerrang! Was distributed by Bauer Media
A possible media institution to distribute my magazine would be IPC Media. This Is because they are one of the leading media institutions in the UK, therefore if they distributed my magazine it would be well known and a reliable distributor. IPC also publish NME magazine which is a magazine my target audience would read. IPC Media is such a well known publisher that 26 millions adults read a magazine published by IPC Media.
Bauer Media is a world wide offering over 300 magazines in 15 countries. Bauer owns more then 80 influential brands. Bauer Media reaches over nineteen million UK adults across multiple media channels. Having this success would make Bauer Media a good choice to publish my magazine. Bauer brands include Kerrang! And Q magazines which I have researched into in the research stage of creating my magazine. My magazine is also similar to these magazines making it a perfect distributor.
