The campaign consists of two parts. The first one, a set of special commemorative themes, is accessible for free by all Xbox Live members.

The other part of the campaign is a prize of 10,000 Microsoft Points, to be given to 100 people via raffle. Those who are interested in signing up for this part of the campaign can fill in the required information at the campaign entry page. Names are being accepted through May 31.
