The theme is totally free. You can create a video, which features your first 100 days in Second Life, or create a whole story, directing other avatars! Otherwise, you can show us footage from your favorite sims. Or just create a sequences of wonderful images and stream them, as a slideshow, Just remember to add your video a good soundtrack!

You can submit your entries from April, 2 until April, 29.
The winners will be announced on May, 6 here and on the Koinup Blog.
