Before submitting your application, please review the following Programming policies, by applying to present at Denver Pop Culture Con (DPCC) you and any fellow presenters agree to the following guidelines:  

  • Denver Pop Culture Con (DPCC) is a family friendly event – all panels/sessions must adhere to a PG/PG-13 rating.
  • DPCC and Pop Culture Classroom are dedicated to inspiring education and community regardless of age, race, gender, or background – and does not allow any offensive behavior or topics in panels/sessions.  
  • DPCC will not place guests on submitted panels nor will we contact, invite, or book a guest for the purposes of a submitted panel.
  • Panelists/Submitters are prohibited from contacting guests or their agents or publicists, to attempt to include the guest on their panels. Regardless of whether the guest consents to be on the panel, failure to follow this rule will result in immediate decline or cancelation of your panel. 
  • Do not submit a panelist's name unless you obtain in advance that person's consent to be on your panel. DPCC has neither the staffing resources nor contact information to contact in advance each panelist for hundreds of panels, to ask them to be on your panel. Failure to adhere to this rule will result in the immediate decline or cancelation of your panel(s).
  • DPCC is not responsible for confirming the schedule with your panelist. Should your panel be accepted and scheduled, you are responsible for contacting (again) each panelist and instructing them of their responsibilities and schedule.
  • Day-badges are provided only for actual panel participants (max 6) who sit at the dias and contribute to the entirety of the panel.
  • The DPCC Programming schedule includes hundreds of hours of programming with nearly 1,000 panelists and presenters, as such, we cannot guarantee that a panel appear on any given day of the convention. Before submitting, applicants are committing to present on any day and time during DPCC. 
  • All DPCC panel rooms are equipped with a dais (table) and up to 6 chairs for moderator/panelists, one or more microphones, a projector and a screen. Panel rooms do not include a laptop, so if necessary panelists must be prepared to bring their own laptop and connector/dongle/accessories. 
  • Internet is not available in panel rooms. Should you wish to project a presentation, you must bring it on a laptop -- back up flash drives are also highly recommended.
  • Giveaways are acceptable in panels, as long as they are free-of-charge and conform with DPCC standards -- including the prop policy and adhering to a PG rating. However, due to health and safety concerns the Colorado Convention Center prohibits the distribution of any foodstuffs, including but not limited to individually wrapped candies.
  • As a program of the 501(c)3 non-profit Pop Culture Classroom, the goal of every DPCC panel/session is to provide some educational value to attendees. A such, panels/ sessions cannot be conspicuously self-promotional for individuals, organizations, and/or products/materials.
