EDIT: updated list of entries so far!
~ You are cordially invited to participate in the Sith Family fan contest. ~


Create a fan work focusing on the 'family' side to a Sith character!

DEADLINE: MAY 5 (‘Revenge of the Fifth’)


1st place: X-wing model + 5 Topps Force Attax cards

2nd place: Star Wars Tabletop Game + 5 Topps cards

3rd place: Star Wars A4 Notebook + 5 Topps cards

Best in originality: Star Wars candy collectible (lollypop + mega tattoo set)

Best in technique: Star Wars candy collectible

Entrant with the most entries: Star Wars candy collectible

Take a look at the prizes here!

The Sith you can choose to focus on for your entry:

Palpatine, Maul, Plagueis, Dooku, Asajj Ventress, Savage Opress, Tenebrous, Venamis, Bane, Zannah. (No Vader this time, because he is already popular in this kind of theme.)

What does the contest theme mean?

The contest theme was inspired by the Vader and Son books – they show Darth Vader being a dad in a light-hearted way. Your entry can be (but doesn’t have to be) outright funny or cute – the only theme rule is to show the Sith in a softer moment of not being complete villains.

Try exploring the Sith's personality or past, imagine a new scene, create a funny parody or a moment which fits into canon… It’s all up to you, any interesting idea works fine!

The family type you can choose from:

  •  Sith masters and/or apprentices (Example: Maul and Palpatine)
  • Biological or adoptive family (Examples: Plagueis and his parents, Savage Opress and his Nightbrothers)
  • Other important ‘family’ roles in the Sith’s life - mentor, protégé or friend (Examples: Vidar Kim or Padmé Amidala to Palpatine, Larsh Hill to Plagueis, Mother Talzin to Asajj)
  • You can combine different family types in your entry, too!


You are allowed to submit an unlimited number of entries. Entries must be your own work and created after the contest start, March 24. Any art form is accepted - fanart, fanfiction, crafts…

No shipping/romantic love themes (EDIT: unless it is a canon love interest, then of course it will be allowed). No disturbing content – some dark themes are allowed as the characters are Sith, but no overly abusive or triggering scenes.

Prizes will be sent out by mail - I will ship for free and worldwide. If you are underage, you should ask an adult if it’s OK to give out the address you want your prize sent to. For picking winners, creativity, skill and effort will be key criteria factors. Judges will be hegodamask and  myself.

A big thank you to SeperatistsOnly and Aliens-of-Star-Wars for putting out a blog entry about this!

Elodore, Dooku and Son by TiffanyEtch-A-Sketch

LegacySilence was not an uncommon guest in this wing of Dooku's palace on Serenno. He liked it quiet, free from the auditory pollution of servant droids and visiting dignitaries he only barely tolerated. Only a handful of beings, organic or not, were allowed to set foot in these chambers. The cavernous study was home to books and records of all kinds, all subjects, and all formats. Being surrounded by so much knowledge from all manner of peoples and times was a welcome weight most days. But even the most vast and varied library could not answer all questions.
Dooku sat there now, his back to the books and scrolls in favor of gazing out the window that took up the majority of the back wall. At first he seemed to be studying the patterns of the raindrops that struck the transparisteel and sped down the panes in rivulets. Or the dense forest that lay outside the courtyard's walls. But a closer look would reveal that his gaze was beyond anything the eye could see.
In fact, his vision was filled

Thank you so much for the wonderful entry, I'm sorry I can't properly comment on it yet but my dA is being uncooperative. It's on the entries list and I was so surprised to see an actual Dooku family possibility existing. :o

That's okay,  I'm totally procrastinating on here so don't feel bad. :giggle:

I know right? I would have never thought this guy had that possibility. :wow:

Ah no problem. I had a lot of fun doing it. I did most of it with my eyebrows narrowed and teeth clenched, It was my first sketch card attempt and I didn't want to ruin it. 
I hope DA will soon give you troubles no more. <333

(I'm probably just stupid) 

But I don't entirely get it. What am I suppose to do?
What are you looking for? 
Could it be an OC or another sith that is not from the list?
Teq-Uila Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014
Hello! Sorry for the late reply, deviantART wouldn't load for me!

You can include an OC if you really want to or another Sith who is not on the list, but your work *has* to include at least one of the characters from the list. (If you choose Count Dooku for example, you can include an OC, any of his Sith apprentices, his Jedi apprentice or master, his birth parents...)

The only thing I'm looking for is a work that shows a Sith in a 'family' theme, rather than a generic 'Hello I am a villain' kind of theme. It's quite an open prompt, so it can be anything you want: two Sith eating ice cream, a story about a Sith remembering his mother, a picture of a Sith behaving kindly one day to his apprentice...

Good luck! I'll be happy if you choose to enter! :w00t:
