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. by Stormraven24
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
