I'm a little confused as to what e-mail/where we send/post the art for contest two~
Do we just use the regular contact form under the AA department?

Why are we getting less than 3 full days for the art contest, at the beginning of the week? There are people who are working full time, have school...I mean, finals are this week and next for a lot of universities. Couldn't the deadline extend at least to the end of the 12 Days promotion so it includes a weekend in there? =/

What is the URL for the ACen Facebook page. There seem to be two open groups, and I'm not sure which to post in for Day 3. I'm not going to use Twitter.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I tried looking at the contact form at the bottom of the website, and production is not in the drop down list of the website contact form.
I tried e-mailing production@ACen.org but that ended up in a delivery failure. TmT I'm all confused now.
