In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?• I researched various existing R&B magazines and most of the magazines I found had dull backgrounds whereas I wanted vibrant colours.• I was influenced by clash’s banner at the top of the screen, however I challenged this convention and put mine at the bottom of the page.• The Barcode on Clash magazine is on the right hand side of the page I decided to follow the convention.• I challenged the conventions in terms of the image as the artist on the Clash magazine is an extreme close up whereas the image on my magazine is a medium shot because I had to capture his hand sign.
How does your media product represent particular social groups?• My Magazine is aimed towards 13 – 18 year olds.• Looking at my magazine, it mostly attracts females however, I added fashion tips and top 10 R&B music hits which would apply to young males• My model was purposely chosen because he is a young teen. The mise-en-scene represents young teenagers.• As a sub-heading I added a competition for fans to have a chance to meet the artist because I know this applies to a young audience.
What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?• VIBE is a well known institution who circulates approximately 800,000 magazines a year worldwide.• Q magazine is a monthly magazine published by Bauer Media which total circulation is 80,418.• VIBE and Q would distribute my magazine as it is R&B based and follows there conventions.• Bauer Media are known to distribute magazines that are a range of genres such as Rock, R&B and Pop.• Gathering this my magazine would be distributed by Bauer Media.

How did you attract/address your audience?• The Picture on my front page is of a teen sensation Jack Britt, I also added a competition to meet him, This would draw the female audience in because they would want to meet him.• The male audience would be more attracted to the sub heading were it says about the UKs top 1- R&B Music.
