The first is in process and will be officially announced at the end of the week, but to get you started thinking, *SoliDea FoliEs* is having a contest for find five new bloggers for our store. There will be a prize as well, so stay tuned in and I will give the details in a few days! The second is a wonderful contest from one of the best animations creators in Second Life. Vista Animations.
