European Beard and Moustache Championships

Germany’s famous East Bavarian Beard Club played host to the European Beard and Moustache Championships high in the Austrian Alps on October 2, 2010. The event drew about 150 participants from eight countries to the town of Leogang, not far from Salzburg, Austria. The competition saw men compete in 17 eccentric categories, including "Freestyle Beard," "Natural Moustache" and "Verdi," with the winner of the latter category bearing a style akin to the famous 19th century Italian composer Giuseppi Verdi.
