Portfolio Contest

Registered? Check. Add-on Portfolio Critique? Check. And now — would you like your work to be truly SEEN? Three faculty members—including an Art Director—will be judging the portfolios in RMC’s limited space, juried Portfolio Contest. The prize? A one-on-one  virtual portfolio consultation with an art director at a large publishing house (director TBD). The runner-up receives a $30 gift certificate to The Wandering Jellyfish, our amazing conference bookstore.

Conference Bookstore

Each attendee who registers during the early registration period (June 22-July 17) has the option of registering one of their books to be carried in the conference bookstore.

Please note: we cannot guarantee we will be able to have requested books for sale in the conference bookstore. Books may be backordered or otherwise unavailable. We will do our best.

You must enter your book’s information when you register, including:

  • Book Title
  • ISBN Number
  • Publisher

For books sold on consignment (often self-published), you will also need to enter:

  • # of books for consignment
  • Retail Price
  • Wholesale Price (60% of retail)
  • Payment Name & Address

Because of the popularity of this offering, the book table can only accept books that have been registered on or before July 17, 2023. There will be no exceptions to this deadline.

RMC Calendars & Swag

2024 RMC Calendar

During registration, conference attendees may pre-order 2024 RMC calendars for a discounted price. The cost is discounted because you will pick-up your calendars instead of paying for shipping.

Additional copies of the calendar may be available onsite at the conference bookstore, but last year we sold out. Please help us print enough calendars by pre-ordering during registration.

Tote Bag

Premium canvas tote bag with reinforced straps. Blue straps and bottom with front pocket. Perfect size for books. Printed with calendar contest winning image. Note: Tote bag photo is for example only. Final design/color may be different.

BPA-free stainless steel water bottle holds up to 26 oz. of your favorite beverage, and includes a carabiner for easily carrying just about anywhere you want. This is perfect for staying hydrated when active. Printed with RMC logo. Note: Water bottle photo is for example only. Final logo placement may be different.
