About

Opaque magazine’s mission is to provide a voice to those who are often forgotten about, and also to talk about issues within society and the world that should be highlighted every day. 

At University, I first developed Opaque Magazine but faced many challenges as I wasn’t able to offer payment to likeminded journalists who wanted to collaborate on the magazine. 

Being able to raise funds means being able to collaborate with freelance journalists, writers, photographers and content creators across the world who otherwise probably wouldn’t get the chance to have their work featured anywhere. Opaque magazine is all about representation for everyone and inclusivity, and we aim to make this as collaborative as possible. 

Funding will also make it possible to travel to locations where minority groups and long-standing issues exist, such as countries outside the western world. 

We will also be able to have a proper website and logo designed, as well as beijg able to set up social media campaigns to get as many content creators on board as possible. 

With the funding, we are hoping to buy our own domain and also copyright Opaque Magazine.

Ideally, I would also like to work with selected charities from around the country.


You can see the work we have already done at www.opaquemag.blogspot.co.uk

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we have faced so far is trying to find content creators to collaborate with us as everyone wants to receive some form of payment. Hopefully if we raise enough funding we will be able to offer this and find more content creators as a result, meaning we can publish more content at a more regular and faster rate. We can also dedicate more time to social media as we can run campaigns which will hopefully bring more traffic to our website.
