The Genre in this particular picture is displayed as a non- fiction drama, as it portrays a story like image. It is showing what bullying is and what it can result in, through a creative way of a drama sense genre.
Comparison Between both text types:
The Bullying awareness image and the bullying documentary have both similarities and differences
through Target Audience, Language choice, Structure, Genre and Style. The target audience in both text types are aimed at a different audience , yet do share one similarity as they both are aimed at teenagers, yet they also go on to appeal to more of a target audience. As the " The Bully" documentary aims at more of the parents whose children have or are being bullied and what they can do about it, it also aims at the schooling system letting it slide through. While on the other hand the " The Bullying awareness photo", is completely aimed at teenagers that are in high school and who see this kind of behavior happening in their schools. The language choice in both texts are quite different as they the Bullying documentary is quite formative, as it is from perspectives of a child and his parents and what they went through while he was getting bullied, his teachers and a psychologist. By looking at the image it takes quite a vastly different approach to make awareness of bullying by using informal language choice so that teenagers can relate and feel endured to listen and take notice. Both ways are quite efficient in bringing awareness of bullying in our schools. The structure in the documentary and the image are very different as for starters they are both different text types, one is a image whilst the other is a documentary. The bullying documentary and the awareness post have the similarity that the style of both of them are creative as they are trying to convey a serious issue that they want people to become aware of and they have turned it into an interesting way in which they target audience, learns more of the issue of bullying that is happening in our society. Lastly, the genre of each of the text types were compared and with that it can be drawn that the image and the documentary are not the same genre as the image is displayed as a non- fiction drama, whilst the documentary is a genre of non-fiction real life documentary.
All in all it can be said that the both the Bully Documentary and the Bullying awareness image have both similarities and differences. Both are successful in providing the audience with knowledge of bullying as a huge society issue.
The Style that is vigilant in the picture is that the author displays a real creative way to portray the issue of bullying to the audience. This is so that they can be captured and learn what is happening in our schools and what teenagers really go through even though they are already facing troubles.
The structure that has been seen in this image is a structure where it seems like it has a story structure or even to a point a poem structure. This technique helps to capture the audiences attention. As it is not long, which would make the target audience, who in this case is teenagers appealed.
Target audience is one of the most profound techniques that are vigilant in all texts, in this specific image the target audience that has been portrayed is aimed at teenagers. Teenagers who have been bullied and who have been in these particular situations or those who have been apart of bullying others, are at most the vigilant target audience.
The language choice in the bullying image has set a scene of an informal text, where it portrays a sense of language that can be relatable to the target audeince, which in this case is teenagers. As the language has a tone that seems like it is putting blame on the audience, which really draws them more into the issue.
By the language choice of this text it is very capturing for the audeince and creates a sense of appeal.
