CONTEST IS NOW OVER. THANKS TO ALL THAT ENTERED. WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON!
Hey Tweeple! Tweet Your Way to $100.
We recently launched a new ad campaign here at J&R. You might have seen our new commercials on TV, floating around on the web, or plastered around the city. (Check em out below, if you haven’t yet.) Well, we’re looking for some new slogans to add to our site and we want you to help! There’s a swanky $100 J&R giftcard for the person that submits the slogan that we choose as the winner.
So what do you need to do? It’s simple. Just come up with a witty slogan about J&R ending with “….since 1971″ and Tweet it! Make it a reply to us with @JRblog and include the Hashtag, #JRSloganContest. That’s it!
Check out a few examples of slogans we are currently using after the jump.
A Few Tips:
Slogans should refer to NYC, Technology, or Current Affairs, have some gritty attitude, and help reflect what makes J&R unique.
Brevity is the soul of wit. We’d prefer that your slogan stay one sentence, if possible. Less than 75 characters works best. Oh, and no referencing anything obscene or gross, ok? Let’s keep it clean. All entries must use this hashtag: #JRSloganContest. That will ensure that we see your entry and that you are properly considered.
A nifty $100 J&R gift card goes to the entry chosen by our staff. Besides showing up on our website, your slogan also might appear in a future J&R email, too.
As an added bonus, we’ll send you a cool screenshot of your winning slogan as it appears on JR.com. That’ll be sure to impress your family & friends!
