Why are you excited to judge a pro-Israel meme competition?

I am looking forward to seeing how creative people can get. I live and breathe social media and this is a great opportunity to influence the content that is not only well put out but also represents my ideology.

Why did you want to be a judge for this competition?

For the past year, I’ve been an intern in the Act.IL initiative: an online community for Israel which is active through an innovative one-of-a-kind app. The internship was a part of my academic government studies focusing on public diplomacy in an honors program. The Milstein Meme Competition is the time for me to use the knowledge and experience I gained.

What are you looking to get out of being a judge for the pro-Israel meme competition?

I am hoping to get to know fascinating meme designers who are edgy, witty and creative. I am hoping to reveal myself to new ideas as an active Israeli citizen and to see as many pro-Israelis participate in this unique competition.
