Calling All Fans: Submissions for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim Fan Programming Now Being Accepted

If you are planning to attend Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in 2015, then you should take a shot at being a more active participant in the event and spread your love and knowledge of Star Wars with other fans.

Lucasfilm is now accepting initial proposals for fan programming at the event.  There will no doubt be a ton of interest in this convention, so I suggest not only that you get your idea in early (they won't be reviewed until early 2014) but that you take the time to craft a well thought out idea with as much information and specificity as you can.  I would also suggest that in the interest of Mary Franklin's sanity that you don't send the same idea multiple times or have absurd proposals.  Think brevity, specificity and clarity when crafting your proposal.

The Fan Programming Solicitation:

Fan Programming
It’s never too early to start planning for Star Wars Celebration!
Celebrations are created by fans, for fans, and we want you to start thinking of how you might contribute to the fun. At all Celebrations, Star Wars fans have the opportunity to become a very important part of the show. You, your friends, or your fan club can jump right into the heart of Celebration by submitting proposals and ideas for fan-sponsored events, entertainment, panels, or exhibits.
Please send a brief initial proposal (limit 500 words) to Mary Franklin at Lucasfilm. Proposals should include your email address and contact information.
Briefly summarize what you would do, time, budget, materials needed, number of people involved, and how the audience would participate, if at all. Initial proposals will be considered for final proposals but are not guaranteed scheduling during Star Wars Celebration.
Fan Programming Submittal Schedule: 
Fan programming proposals may be turned in starting now, but review will begin in early 2014.
First responses from Lucasfilm to Fan Programming Proposals will begin April 7, 2014.
All Fan Programming Proposals will be due by December 15, 2014.
Final decisions on Fan Programming Proposals will be made and communicated by February 1, 2015.
If you do submit a proposal, may the Force be with you and good luck.
