The 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championships, sponsored by Just For Men, took place on Saturday, October 25th at the Keller Auditorium in Portland, Oregon. Professional photographer Craig Mitchelldyer captured beautiful photos of the contestants for Just for Men. Mitchelldyer’s full series of images from the world championship can be viewed on his blog and the TODAY website. The overall winner was Madison Rowley (pictured above) who sported a very impressive “bushy beard”.
From delicate Dali moustaches to anything-goes full beard freestyles and medal-worthy mutton chops, this competition represented the full spectrum of beard and mustache art with 18 categories. The Grand Prize? An all-expense paid trip to the 2015 world championships in Leogang, Austria!
