A Beard Off, for those not familiar with the term, is a kind of beard growing competition. Participants present themselves, cleanly-shaved, on the registration day (pictures will be taken) to assure fairness.
Participants then grow the best beard they can by the judging day.
Judging has two components: objective measures and style. The objective judging day comes first and is based on several criteria:
Style judging (also known as flair day) comes one day later and is independent of the objective measures. This partly measured as an improvement over your beard presentation from the first day, and is partly judged on flair. Make us proud.
If you cannot make the registration date but still want to participate (and are confident in your beard-prowess), you are welcome to register late.
Remote registration via live video may be arranged.
You may not interfere with any beards that are not your own. Anything else is fair game. Hair growth products? Weird, but okay. Flannel? Encouraged. Lumberjack Challenge? That can be arranged.
If you feel that you are a qualified beard-judge, let me know and/or send me a hilarious resume.
Participants may not also be judges.
This includes fun for the ladies, too. You are welcome to register a proxy beard. This would be an individual who would abide by the standard rules of the competition, except his beard would be registered to you. Just bring your beard-proxy to the registration and judging dates.
Note, beards should be proxied consensually.
