Bella Magazine

Bella – beautiful girl – is the latest girls’ magazine for 13 to 19 year olds. It was launched in Australia early 2009. Bella aims to provide young women with an alternative to the sexed-up modern day magazines.

Bella encourages young women to be who they are – not what mainstream media wants them to be.

Bella is a non-profit magazine that will be a catalyst for a cultural revolution, to reverse the tide of self-damaging attitudes and trends imposed upon our young women.

  1. Hi!
    Is Bella a christian magazine/organisation?

    • Although Bella isn’t a Christian magazine most of the people that run it are strong Christians and believe in impacting this generation with positive values! 🙂

  2. Is Bella a christian organisation/magazine?

  3. hi, again i would just like to thank u sooooooo much. bella always makes me feel so much better about myself and picks me up when i’ve had a bad day, me and my bestie always get it and we love it to bits!

    • Thanks Melinda – and thank-you for reading! We appreciate all the Bella girls that read our mag and hope they are encouraged by it!

  4. hey bella
    i just started reading bella because of a program called ‘shine’ at my school and i absolutely love it! I only wish it came out monthly. i love it all but the cute fashion and questions and answers are by far my favourite!
    So thank u bella

  5. Hi! 🙂 Can I just say I love you’re magazine?!
    Hey, I was just wondering, I would reeeeaaally looooove to model, but I don’t want to do all that ”sexed-up” stuff as you described, and I thought you’re magazine was great, I was just wondering if I could maybe be a model?

  6. Dear Bella,
    I just wanted to thank you for being a different kind of magazine, that teaches young women about true beauty. I absolutely love reading your mag! And it doesn’t have ‘boys, boys, boys!’ written all over it. (quite literally:)
    Yes, you talk about boys, but in a way that teaches girls how to find the right man of their dreams. Thanks. You probably save lives all around the world. Just telling a girl she’s beautiful could help her keep her life!
    Thanks!!!!! ❤

  7. Hello
    I’ve read some of the Bella mags my friend has and received a free Bella mag last year at school and i’m dying for another but my mum says it’s just a waste of time reading magazines and i should be focusing on my assessment instead. She wants me to get several uni degrees and become some professer. Any ideas on how to say NO!

  8. Hey Bella,
    I’m currently searching for work experience in Australia. I was wondering if there was any way I could come do work experience for your magazine. I am interested in photography, design and journalism. I am also interested in teen issues, overcoming them and finding new and interesting topics. Thank you so much,

  9. Hey is there any place to get the Bella magazines in QLD Brisbane

  10. Hi Bella

  12. Hi.
    I want to thank you for magazine. As a teenage girl I really struggle with low self esteem/self confidence and body image as well as other things. Your magazine reminds me that you’re allowed to feel good about yourself no matter what size you are. It’s something that I struggle to accept but Im working hard to feel good about myself 🙂

    • Wow Hannah… you keep working hard to accept yourself the way you are because it’s girls like you that are going to change our world. You are brave, strong and priceless!

  13. hey Bella!

    by the way… i love your magazine and you should think about having one every month!!!! xoxo 🙂

    • Hi Dana, unfortunately entries closed for that competition on the 30th of June 😦 sorry! We have a very exciting new competition with our Spring edition (out soon) that you should check out… it’s a Model search (with a difference)! Thanks so much for your feedback, we love hearing from our beautiful Bella girls! The email address is sorry about the misprint in Bella Winter!

  16. hi bella I really love your magazine its not like the main stream magazines telling you what’s wrong with you and recomending diets to “fix it” your magazine has made me and alot of other girls be evan happier with what they look like and I don’t care as much about what people think of me so thanks bella love josie

    • Hi Josie! That’s our aim and goal for Bella, for you to realise that what main stream media and magazines sell to you isn’t going to make you see your true value, beauty and purpose! We love to hear that you and your girlfriends have been helped to realise that by our magazine! We produce Bella because we feel so passionately about getting this message out to young ladies like you! Thank you for letting us know how much you love our magazine!!!! Keep growing in that knowledge Josie! love Bella xx

    I really love how Bella doesn’t have all the demeaning stuff about celebrities and gossip like other teen girls’ magazines. And as soon as I saw all the pages with beautiful quotes on them, I typed them down on my iPhone so I can post them on my Tumblr later!

    Anyway, thankyou for making such an amazing magazine. It really is special and totally made my day 🙂

    • Thanks Chloe! Great idea to type all those wonderful quotes into your phone. We love making this magazine so we are so happy to hear you enjoyed it too!

  33. Heey Bella Magazine,
    I love your magazine and was wondering if I would ever be able to model for the magazine. Is there a certain age you have to be ?
    Thanks, Emma 🙂

    • Hey Emma 🙂 My name’s freya, im 15 and I did modelling in the most recent magazine. I know the Ladies who run the magazine, so perhaps its through connections, but as far as I know there’s no restrictions as to how old you need to be. 🙂

  34. Great mission. As a youth pastor and father of a 12 year old daughter I applaud your vision and hard work to see it to reality. I have been working with young men and women for over 20 years and I still need all the help I can get to raise my daughter. When I saw a copy of your publication I immediately began the process of getting a subscription for home. Thanks and blessings.

    • Thank you very much for your kind words, Rob!

  35. Hi there,
