CRED PHILLY seeks to amplify the voice and vision of young Philly. We encourage Philly’s young artists, designers, journalists, activists and entrepreneurs to contribute and curate published content as well as advertise their businesses and services. Each selected youth receives an honorarium as well as publication in each of our 10,000 copies.

The Portfolio, Street Cred and The Market are featured in every issue. Additional sections featuring specialized content vary from issue to issue.

THE PORTFOLIO is a submission-based collection of visual art, performing art and creative writing that is created, documented and curated by youth.

STREET CRED is young Philly’s unique perspective on the people, places, businesses and events that nourish Philadelphia’s neighborhoods.

THE MARKET allows local businesses and services to show their support for youth arts in Philadelphia.


OUR EDITORIAL TEAM is comprised of a large network of young individuals and groups across the Philadelphia region and is managed by the staff and teaching artists at The Village of Arts and Humanities.

CRED PHILLY IS PRODUCED three times annually. Each issue is printed in a series of 10,000 copies. Based on an industry standard of three readers per copy, the magazine is expected to reach more than 30,000 Philly residents.

CRED PHILLY HAS RECEIVED ACCOLADES FROM teens and young adults from across the region as well as parents, educators, schools and colleges, professional artists, designers, journalists, arts organizations, youth groups, and locally owned businesses.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Antonio Boone and I am the president of Temple Association of Black Journalists. I wanted invite you to TABJ’s 7th Annual Networking Conference.The conference will take place on Thursday, April 19th at 7PM. The networking conference is our biggest event of the year, it allows our members to personally network with professionals from a number of different media fields.

    It would be a great opportunity for our members to meet someone who is active in Philadelphia media. Our conference could also be an excellent way to generate interest in your publication. If you are interested in attending the event please let me know at your earliest convenience.Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
