The RMFC 2016 Art Show is now open for registration! To register, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with the following information:
  • Artist name
  • Whether you will be shipping art
  • Names of any designated agents (authorized to drop off and pick up art).
  • Names of any co-artists for collaborative works
  • Number of panels or table spaces required, and how many should be in the Adult section.
  • Any other special concerns.

Policies and Fees

We are happy to say that once again there will not be a fee for panels this year; an artist can reserve up to two panels. If more is required, you may contact the Art Show Director and explain why to possibly reserve more. RMFC collects a 15% commission on sales through the auction, otherwise you pay nothing.
We are not allowing reservations of half-panels this year, but artists may request shared panels for collaborative of interrelated pieces. If space is available, we will also accept last-minute submissions at the con up until 2pm on Friday. You can also add pieces up till 2pm Saturday, once you already have your panel set. This is done because we want to give everyone a chance to see your hard work before panels close for Voice Auction on Saturday Evening.
As usual, use common sense about which pieces are appropriate for the art show at RMFC, and whether or not they should be submitted to the adult section. If you are uncertain about whether or not a piece is appropriate, please contact us with your questions.

Artist Control Sheet and Bid Tags

Here are the forms for this year:

If you have been directed to a personalized bid sheet by the registration system, disregard that form, as there are bugs in this system that we are still working to resolve. Use only the forms linked from this page.

We require that each artist fill out a control sheet and a bid tag for each of their works, since this is how we keep track of which works belong to whom. You can fill these forms out in Acrobat or most other PDF readers, then print them, which we recommend. If you must use a hand-written form (e.g. for a last-minute submission), make sure to print neatly and legibly.

On the control sheet, please fill out all contact information, the name of each piece that you will have at the show, and mark pieces that are meant for the adult section.

On the bid tags, fill out all information in the top half of the form. If you do not wish to set a minimum bid, write "$0" for the Minimum Bid. If you do not wish to set an after-auction sale price, write "N/A" for the After Sale price. If you do not want to sell a piece at all, remove the bottom half of the tag (from "Bidder Number" down), or write "NFS" in the price fields and we will do so for you.

Mail-in Submissions

We are accepting mail-in submissions this year for 2D (hanging) art only, at the following address:

Rocky Mountain Fur Con
2718 Ames St   
Wheat Ridge, CO 80214

Currently, the art show registration system requires the purchase of a membership. If you are mailing in art and will not be at the convention, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to specify what kind of space(s) you will need for your art. Submissions must be received by August 1st.

All mail-in submissions should come with an artist control sheet, bid tags, and a check for return shipping. We strongly recommend insurance on the shipping as well (both ways); RMFC is not responsible for any damage that occurs during shipping. See the Art Show Policies PDF for more details.

2016 Hotel Status

Greetings Attendees far and near!

I just wanted to give a general status update on behalf of RMFC in regards to the hotel that we have chosen this year. As most of you know, we posted the link to reserve a room on Friday. Many rooms were sold out that very night, which caused quite a few folks to send us reasonably concerned feedback about the current hotel, and what it means for them. There were also a number of technical issues with the website that prevented people from getting a room. These concerns have been forwarded through the proper channels, and we will investigate whether or not they can be rectified. So I want to boil down exactly where we are coming from since we found out that the Marriott would be undergoing renovations in 2016.

The process begins with budgetary concerns. Many venues that had both enough space and rooms (including downtown options like the Hyatt) would have doubled our cost for space rental. Guest rooms also would have been double what our attendees were used to paying in years-past. We did not think that such an unexpected cost increase to our attendees would have been fair. Other options we looked at had plenty of guest rooms but not nearly enough convention space to meet our needs. Lastly, other venues we looked at had plenty of space, but already had rooms and events blocked out, so we could not possibly allocate enough space for our attendees. This, in addition to the time crunch, left us with very few exceptionally good options. The little time we were given to act put us in a position where we were also in competition with at least six other conventions our size for space near the same time period. All of these factors left us with a very limited pool to choose from. In the end, we chose Crowne Plaza DIA because they are within our budget, they have the convention space that we require, and they are willing to work with us for this one year.

Our previous room and growth were factored into the decision. It’s worth noting that while the Marriott did have 600+ rooms, RMFC occupied just a little over 200 of those rooms for 3 nights. This leads our numbers to show that the separations between the room availability at the Crowne Plaza and what we used at the Marriott was not very significant even with growth. Now, I know this isn’t comforting to those of you who do not yet have rooms, but this will bring me to my last point.

Our priority right now is to expand the current room block. That being said, we do have other options down the line. The other benefit to this hotel is that there are quite a few others in the vicinity to support the awesome convention space offered by the Crowne Plaza. We have been working on the possibility of overflow long before we announced the opening of the current block. Once again, this process will take a little bit more time, but once we have secured terms that benefit all of our attendees, you will be the first to know.

Every year that we have launched the roomblock, it has sold out in very short time. As with all previous years, we are working with the hotel to see if we can expand that block even further. This process takes time, and requires more negotiating, so patience is needed from all parties. Don’t Panic. We have issues with hotels every single year, and like all years past, we will work through this problem too, and we will host a fantastic convention for all to enjoy.


In patience and solidarity,

- Sorin Katt
Chairman

... And we're back!

Pre-Registration is open!

That's right, you can now pre-reg at various levels for 2016! It's not only cheaper when you pre-register when compared to registering at con, but it helps to ensure that we can secure promotional items and resources to make this year's convention even more awesome! You will also spend less time in line, and more time having a blast with your fellow furry friends. As time goes on, we will be releasing more information about the awesome things we have in mind. We already have two spectacular reasons for attending: Guests of honor Rick Griffin, creator of Housepets!, and Snap E. Tiger, owner of fursuit maker ByCats4Cats. Check them both out on our GOH page!

As of right now, our official dates will be August 12-14, and we will be moving to the Crown Plaza DIA while the Marriott undergoes renovations throughout 2016. The room block, dealer's registration, and volunteer registration will open soon after the new year.

A group of happy fursuiters

Our 2015 convention has come and gone, and what a spectacular one it was! We hope you agree. After all 1,640 of you folks showed up, we had 382 fursuits attend the parade, and raised nearly $3,000 for our charity, Freedom Service Dogs. Add that to the awesome artwork, our fabulous events, and friendly company, and we couldn't be more pleased, and we can't wait to do it again for you next year!

And boy do we have some amazing plans in store for you next year at our next event: B-Movie Night! Which will actually take place during the course of three nights. It will be fun, it will be crazy, and at some points quite cheesy! More details will be released soon.

Until then, stay tuned to the site, as well as our pages on social media for the latest news, and chances to win free prizes!
