Judging by the lack of entries, not many of you knew I was hosting a beard contest this winter. That's probably all the better. It might have taken away from my snowboarding if I had to wade through a bunch of entries and actually judge them or have others do the same. Instead I had the easiest number of entries possible. Just one.
|This guy. Before.|
This guy is Ian from Wisconsin. Ian knows rule #1 for contests: To win, you must first enter. Sometimes that's all it takes. Here's what Ian could do with five months of beard growing.
|After. Portrait of a winner.|
For having all this fun with facial hair, Ian won a Poler Mini Duffle, a Salomon 3/4 sleeve shirt, a Superior Threadworks beanie and a Nike DryFit long-sleeve. Not bad for taking three pictures and otherwise just having an awesome beard.
Ian will be looking to defend his crown next winter. The rest of you, PAY ATTENTION!
