The competition works like all other competitions in that the goal is to, ultimately, allow other developers to learn from your code and article in order to allow them to get started in writing games.

Your article and code will be published on CodeProject.com like any other article.

I understand there may be certain proprietary pieces of code you don't wish to share, but we're assuming that a $25,000 grand prize will more than make up for any inconvenience you may face in writing code that doesn't use proprietary information you don't wish to share.
cheers,
