Press Release – HVNGRY Magazine

HVNGRY for more from your media?

Wednesday, January 29 2014

Introducing HVNGRY magazine – an online publication for teen girls (and boys) wanting more from mainstream media. It’s a belly full of inspiration, motivation, passion, power, and taking-over-the-world. HVNGRY is here to feature amazing works, thoughts, and creations relevant to a diverse range of readers, with a focus on lovely things like body positivity, intersectionality and openness.

The magazine went live on Friday, January 24th and has received well over 7000 pageviews worldwide. Twenty minutes before the website had even launched, HVNGRY was selected as one of ten finalists in the BNZ StartUp Alley and will be pitching their publication to the esteemed international attendees at 2014’s Webstock conference - hosted in Wellington on the 13th and 14th of February.

HVNGRY is a worldwide phenomenon founded by three students at Otago University and was made possible by their network of friends and family -- all passionate about positive media for girls.

It has never been more important to foster the growth and confidence of girls and young women, who face a raft of issues such as the gender pay gap, upward mobility in the workplace and inclusiveness in the social sphere. HVNGRY aims to challenge everyday perceptions that have long become stale representations of what girls think about and what they relate to. HVNGRY will touch on problems many are often too afraid or too ashamed to speak of out loud. It will cover LGBT issues, self-perception, body confidence and health, sexuality, diversity, discrimination and difference.

An open team of enthusiastic and experienced writers will contribute stories, opinion pieces, as well as advice on fashion & style; beauty & health; and reviews of films and music. We will also be on hand to answer your queries, questions and comments. Let 2014 be the year of inspiration; the year to satisfy your hvnger.
