Steven Beard says he has more than just a tinge of ginge in the pursuit of beardliness.

Corrie Roberts says a little bit of laziness, a little bit of defiance went into making his beard.

Momo Smith: “ Can i join in?”

To celebrate all things ginger, the company is breaking down the walls of gingerism and is inviting people to enter their great fiery ginger beard for a public vote. The total prize pool includes $1,000 cash and a beard grooming kit to keep the title holder in top form.

The competition, which is running for a total of 6 weeks, asks bearded gingers and redheads across the country to enter by submitting a photograph of themselves.

All submissions will be published in a photo gallery on the company’s Facebook page. The company’s spokesperson Bevan Wait says the competition has grabbed a huge amount of attention. “We knew this competition would go well but we never knew there were so many proud ginger beard owners out there. People are nominating their ginger bearded friends to enter too, its great!”.

The greatest gingerbeer(d) with the most public votes or ‘Likes’ will take out the respective titles.
Competition entries opened on November 4th and are set to close on December 14.
