DescriptionUrban Christian Culture (UCC) Magazine is an entertainment and urban lifestyle focused magazine, currently seeking to offer Journalism internship opportunities.
Who Are We?
The magazine, which is a quarterly publication, is a platform for the advancement of independent, urban, Christian artists worldwide who are looking for a promotional outlet. We also have an online presence that is working towards helping to promote emerging artists and events. The magazine serves as a lifestyle guide for young Christians who are passionate about urban arts, lifestyle, culture and entertainment. The topics we cover are wide and varying, and include relationships, fashion, fitness, healthy eating, spiritual devotions, entertainment, events, community topics, and general interest articles, just to name a few. Our readership, which has a main audience range between ages 18-34, (35-49 secondary) represents the next generation of urban, young professionals and scholars.
UCC has a considerable and ever expanding reach in the NY metropolitan area which we have been working diligently on expanding both nationally and globally.
We would like to end by saying: There are over 1 billion Christians in the world and over 246 million Christians in the United States that come in all colors and creeds. We believe "urban" is not a race or gender, but a lifestyle and culture so diversity is key. We are looking for individuals who have a voice in their community that has an interest in interviewing up and coming artists in their geographical location. We are also looking for individuals who have a passion for writing about the topics that we mentioned above. Submission coverage for articles or artists interviews can be in the form of articles, video interviews, or video footage.
