2021 NZ BEARD & MOUSTACHE COMPETITION

"Since the dawn of humankind, men have grown facial hair. Political leaders, religious icons, heroes, villains..." (Jack Passion, The Facial Hair Handbook, 2009)

HOORAY! The Fellowship of the Beard NZ proudly brings you back the NZ Beard and Moustache Competition!
We are calling all facial hair enthusiasts to join us and celebrate an afternoon full of brushes, combs, hairsprays and no razors!
This is the one and only National Competition hosted for the 8th consecutive year, this time in conjunction with our friends from Armageddon Expo.
Remember this is only for REAL FACIAL HAIR bearers, except our popular WHISKERINA Category, where ladies can craft their own beards and/or moustaches.
This is NOT A COSPLAY contest but we encourage you to "dress to impress" as the overall look is one of the most important features when being judged, we hope to see lots of bearded comic book, games, film & TV characters!!

Registration is free with your Armageddon Expo ticket!
