This year, over 300 moustachioed and bearded men came from not less than 20 countries and gather together on a small alpine town of Leogang in Austrian mountains to take pride and show off their epic surprises in the 2015 World Beard and Moustaches Championships. This event showcases the legendary display of moustaches and beards that will astonish and amaze you and will make you think of how they’d come up with such appearance.

In this worldwide competition, participants compete in 18 categories across three subsections: The Partial Beards, Moustaches and Full Beards. There are three prizes given to the best facial hair in each category. If you have been awestrucked with this year’s  participants, take time to visit and see the participants from the 2014 world and 2013 national U.S. championships as well.
