The Best of… JDate’s “Get Chosen” Contest


After searching for the best “Get Chosen” slogans to represent JDate’s new advertising campaign, we’ve officially named not just one…  but three winners! Here are our top three picks!*

  1. “Find Mr. Right to Left” by Jonathan Morvay
  2. “Because Dating Shouldn’t be as Hard as Parting the Red Sea” by Anthony Ramanauskas
  3. “Matzah Ball Recipes Don’t Survive on their Own” by Ricky Sans

JDate’s new “Get Chosen” campaign is a fun, tongue-in-cheek rebranding that’s all about the cultural traditions and experiences unique to the Jewish people. Basically, it emphasizes the “J” in JDate.

Get Chosen Examples

Examples from JDate’s new “Get Chosen” campaign.

We had a blast coming up with lines like “Find someone who wasn’t on your birthright trip,” but we wanted to let our members share in the fun! So, we asked Jewish singles across the globe to share their best “Get Chosen” taglines via Twitter and Instagram. The three winning slogans will be popping up in ads across Los Angeles and New York throughout the summer. In fact, the first billboards already went up in New York’s Times Square — check it out:

Meet Mr Right

One of the winning entries from the “Get Chosen” contest made it on a billboard in Times Square.

Hopefully, the winners are just as excited as we are to see their slogans ‘in lights.’ Not only will the three winners get to have their original ideas used in our national ad campaign, but they will also be awarded the chance to find true love with a free year on JDate!  Who knows, maybe they will “Get Chosen” in more ways than one…

*Entries were judged based on composition of the material submitted and its relevance to the “Get Chosen” theme. To view all contest submissions, visit the Get Chosen contest website.
