How does your media product
represent particular social groups?
My magazine will represent teenagers, and
young adults. This is obviously because it is
a magazine for people between 16-20 years
old. They will represent a group of young
adults which is interested in music, but also
school. It is a social group which can have
fun without drugs, and which can behave.
The price of my magazine is affordable for everyone, also the ones without a job. I chose
the price £ 2, this is a price teenagers can afford all though they do not have a job.
The genre is rock, but a hint of pop, so it is most likely to have readers which are teenagers.
The people I have chosen to interview in my magazine is celebrities which is well- known
for todays teenagers. The social range of my readers is hard to tell since they are still

that is not what my readers is looking for in my magazine.
For the pictures I have used models which looks like
regular teenagers. In this picture it is, Live, which
looks quite normal. We can tell that she is interested
in music since she has a t-shirt with a band-name.

because I do not want to create a pressure for the
latest fashion. This is a music magazine, and I do not
want the fashion or models to be a part of the
I chose to use models which are at the same age as
my readers. This is because I think it will look like a
magazine for teenagers if the people which is inside
My magazine is aimed to everyone, and not a special social
class. I want the magazine to be affordable, so that I can
reach out to everyone I want. The ones I chose to interview
will be celebrities which my readers can relate to. I want the
ones which is in my magazine to be role models for my
readers, and to show them that if you work hard enough you
can reach every goal you make.
Since it is quite cheap I think almost everyone can buy it,
therefore I will have readers from every social range. This will
be very positive, and I think by this I will attract a lot of
different readers. This is in a new way positive, because by
different readers I will write about a lot different artist which
will make my readers listen to a lot of different music.
Although I write about rock, it is a lot of different music in
