The 2015 World Beard And Moustache Championships, held in the town of Leogang in the Austrian mountains, is back with more epic beards and moustaches to marvel at. Over 300 bearded and moustachioed men from 20 different countries descended on this small alpine town to strut their stuff. The first World Beard and Moustache Championship was held in 1990, and since then, this pageant for men has only continued to grow.
Contestants compete in 18 categories across three divisions; Moustaches, Partial Beards and Full Beards. Each category features three prizes for the best facial hair.
