AC is encouraging all Content Producers to submit content under the ‘Display Only’ license from now, through February 28.  A winner will be selected from a drawing; each article you submit is considered one (1) entry, so your assignment (if you wish to accept it) is to submit as many articles as possible over the next four days.

Read the official rules here, then fire up your writing notebook/laptop/computer of choice to drum up a blitz of articles for the first ever content drive.

Good luck everyone!
