Listen up Beardtopians! I know most of you either have a beard or know someone that does. So here is an opportunity to put those beards to good use.
It’s called the Beard Pageant.
It’s your basic beard/moustache contest with a couple twists. In addition to the “hairy” categories, there is also a talent category and also a photoshop/image manipulation category (no facial hair required!) . For the photoshop category, the only beard that is required is the one that you put on some photo in a creative/funny way. All of the entries will have a social vote and a judge vote. There will be cash prizes for the winners and runners-up ($10-$50). The winners will be announced at the finale at Paschall Bar. The deadline to enter is March 9.
Also, the best part of this Beard Pageant is that ALL of the proceeds will go to a Denton charity. And it’s only $5 to enter for each category!
Please, do participate in this. It’s cheap, easy, and should be really fun. Here are the categories:
The most traditionally beautiful, natural, unmodified beard. Winners will have the best combination of size, beauty and style
Talent contest. Contestant must have a beard/moustache and their face must be visible and identifiable. Videos required. Submit links only, no files. Must be uploaded to one of the following: Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Video. Video must be between 5 seconds and 3 minutes.
This is a contest of pure size. All measurements will be considered, but length, from tip of chin to tip of beard, will factor most heavily.
This is a “Photoshop™ contest”, judging the quality/humor of Photoshopped or digitally-modified images of beards on people/things that don’t have them in real life. Quality of work, humor and tastefulness will be considered.
Overall best moustache, that does not take any present beard into consideration.
This is for the most interesting non-traditional beard. Dyed, braided, dreadlocked, or enhanced beards would fall into this competition. Color, style, artistic quality, humor, beauty, shape and size would all factor in this category.
A contest of celebrated beards. The celebrities will be chosen by panel, and though there will be no popular vote, the winners will be chosen by a combination of judges’ votes and pure chance. Just for fun.
