Beard and Moustache Championships 2010

The European Beard and Moustache Championships 2010 in Leogang, Austria town hosts European beard contest - 'Full natural' and 'freestyle' were among the categories that had hirsute types primping, preening - and even blow-drying - their facial tresses for a stab at the top title in the weekend's European Beard and Moustache Championship.

Attracting around 150 proud beard and moustache owners from eight countries, the whiskery face-off took place in the Austrian town of Leogang.

According to reports, the event's only hairy moment (so to speak) happened when a losing Italian team tried to get the competition declared void, claiming their country invented the 'sport' in the 1970s and refusing to recognise new rules.

Men with beards and big moustaches look very manly and this sort of squabbling is unbecoming in men of hair,' remarked one wise official amid the furore.

Austria's beardy bonanza follows a distinctly more 'buzzing' tournament across the pond.

At Ontario's recent Clovermead Bees & Honey Bee Beard Competition , Tibor Szabo emerged triumphant while the losers were left feeling a bit stung (sorry).

In case the concept passed you by, the competition requires entrants to 'grow' a beard by placing a queen bee in a small cage underneath their chin, attracting the worker bees.
