We currently offer a medium rectangle (300 x 250 pixels) that runs on all article and Dispatches pages of the site. We accept a number of formats and are able to target campaigns to language, country, or state. If you wish, we can also limit the number of times the ad is viewed per visit. Animated ads are accepted though they cannot loop.
The rate for the medium rectangle is $10 per 1,000 impressions.
