My target audience would mainly be young women up to the age of 25 from 13, mostly working class as the main feature of my article is a young girl who shows the change in her life even after she has been bullied. This would inspire women to do the same; to reach for their goals like 'Jessica' has, hoping for the same outcome. I have referred to my market research as I found that women typically do not buy music magazines, therefore there is a gap in the market for a music magazine aimed towards females. I also found women enjoy pop music rather than any another genre, this is why I chose to create a pop music magazine.

In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
In my completed magazine I have followed the conventions and style features of Q magazine mainly, however in order to make the magazine my own rather than a copy, I developed many of my own ideas to create my final piece. In Q magazine, the colour scheme is red, black and white with the masthead being in red; I have also followed this house style as it is simple yet professional. Similarly to Q again, I have used the same features such as interviews and reviews to be included in my magazine so that I have a solid style model that is Q.
