Introduction

Media Studies AS Level Coursework Module Three Medium: Print Centre Number: 41224 Nicola Richardson 1. Brief As part of the AS Level course, I have been assigned to produce a piece of coursework which is relevant to both modules one and two which have been covered throughout the year. After researching and analysing British Newspapers and in my own time Sunday Supplements. I have decided to produce the front cover and at least one double page spread article and one singular page article for supplement which will be part of a new Sunday newspaper, which is soon to challenge others in the current market. Of the two articles produced, I decided one must be of a serious nature and both must cover issues raised by my chosen topic. After deciding whether the supplement was one taken from a Tabloid or a Broadsheet newspaper, I had to consider and take into account the target age and the needs of the audience. ...read more.

Middle

The majority of the supplement was based on women's issues like, fashion, cookery, health and articles about women and real life issues. I decided that my topic would be based around fashion and on the serious side of the topic I would raise awareness about racism in the fashion industry. I studied both Tabloid supplements and Broadsheet supplements to assist me when constructing my articles and give me deeper understanding of what sort of language would be suitable for this socio-economic group and audience. As the supplement is taken from a tabloid newspaper the written style had to be taken into account. Looking at examples it was clear to me that to reach the needs of my audience the articles had to be easy Sunday reading, enjoyable, informative yet serious and put across the point which I intend to bring forth to my readers. ...read more.

Conclusion

I will try different ideas and think about the layout of both my front page and the articles. I sketched a few ideas and tried them out on the Microsoft Home Publishing Package that I intend to use to create my supplement. The package is a useful one to use and I am able to scan pictures of my own in and also change pictures to make them suitable for my needs, and also create an array of different text types and sizes. Racism in the fashion world and modelling profession in particular is not an issue that immediately comes to mind when the word racism is raised. Yet it is an issue that is very much alive in the society of today. I intend to produce a questionnaire to see just how aware people are of this issue and to back up my own research on the matter. ...read more.
