If beards weren't already considered an art form, then they should be. In recent years, 'beard competitions' have sprung up all over the world, showcasing the best (and most bizarre) of the bearded world, proving that when it comes to making a statement, a beard can speak volumes. We'd like you to send us your best photos of beards, in all their woolly wonder.
Winners and highly commended finishers will gain exposure across Photocrowd's social media channels and on the 'Best images' page.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
