StarWars.com is looking to celebrate fans all around the world this year, so they want your photos! They are looking for pictures of you in your Star Wars costumes at your local and area landmarks.
Here’s the instructions from Lucasfilm:
Share this message with your
Star Wars friends. Take pictures in your
Star Wars costumes (UPDATE: or with your local landmarks. Star Wars apparel!) Turn in the pictures with a signed copy of the release form (email or fax) to
firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1-415-623-1107 (FAX: Attn: Mary Franklin). (Hint: don’t fax the photos!) Be sure to name the landmark, and area/city/country.
You can start turning them in at any time. The sooner the better!
The deadline is
April 22nd to turn in pictures. But we’ll start putting them up soon after we get them 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 in Los Angeles.) Return of the Jedi
Grab that release form (
Lucasfilm Personal Release 2013) and get out there and get some photos!
Extra Update: Please post on twitter or facebook or the like when you submit stuff!
