Prince of Fools (Red Queen’s War) Fan Art Contest


POF UKLiar's key UK coverThis post is to announce a fan art contest with entries featuring characters, scenes or objects from Mark Lawrence’s fantasy novel,

Prince of Fools.

To enter the competition create an original piece of two-dimensional art (Painting, Drawing, Photography, Digital Art, etc) and email it to us by

clicking HERE.

The best three entries will receive early copies of the second book of the trilogy,

The Liar’s Key (UK edition),

provided for this competition by



There’s also a random prize offered to a random entry by Mark Lawrence!


Please note:

By original art we understand that we are looking to see art featuring original elements conceived and created by you, the artist. It was brought to my attention however that my initial announcement wasn’t precise enough in this matter, for this reason we will accept manipulated images, too, as long as they don’t violate any copyright laws and not include any copyrighted material, or trademarks or logos owned by another party. Your entry mustn’t be a copy of a photo/artwork that you do not own or have permission to use.

You can submit as many entries as you like.


We received a very nice entry from a contestant today, who couldn’t paint for a while due to illness but read the Broken Empire books during this time (currently finishing Emperor of Thorns) and felt so inspired by this contest that she started painting again.
She wrote “The scene that stayed with me was the one where Jorg gave his son to Gorgoth. That’s what I wanted to paint.”

We felt so touched by her email that we decided to loosen the rules and

start accepting entries from both the Broken Empire and the Red Queen’s War series.

  1. I just love all the entries, especially Gorgoth and Jorg’s child. 9, 11 and 13 would have to share second spot but the rest is so awesome as well! I just love it that people can enjoy a book sooo much that they are inspired to make art for it. Great work!
