  2. Take pictures in your Star Wars costumes (UPDATE: or Star Wars apparel!) with your local landmarks.
  3. Turn in the pictures with a signed copy of the release form (email or fax) to fanevents@starwars.com, or 1-415-623-1107 (FAX: Attn: Mary Franklin). (Hint: don’t fax the photos!)
  4. Be sure to name the landmark, and area/city/country.

  6. The deadline is April 22nd to turn in pictures. But we’ll start putting them up soon after we get them
  7. Have Fun, and May the 4th Be With You!

With those last two points, I’m sure something big for Star Wars Day is planned! (Besides the 30th anniversary screenings of Return of the Jedi in Los Angeles.)

Grab that release form (Lucasfilm Personal Release 2013) and get out there and get some photos!
