The 10 person MEAN BEARD judge panel will soon determine the 2021 MEANest BEARD Champion. A total of 78 MEAN BEARD Contestants from around the world have entered the contest. The man with the most impressive beard and story behind the beard will be awarded the MEANest BEARD Champion trophy, a MEAN prize pack featuring a year supply of beard care products, and may also be offered an ambassadorship position with the company.
The judges first will select and announce the TOP 12, and then announce the TOP 3, and then finally announce the CHAMPION. When determining the MEANest BEARD Champion, the main factor is obviously the beard. However, it's not only the beard, it's also the attitude that deems a MEAN BEARD. What's the story behind the beard, what does the beard stand for? The judges will look closely at the story and who the person is behind the beard. The MEANest BEARD Champion will represent MEAN BEARD.
You can meet all of the contestants and read about them at MEAN NEWS. Let us know who you think the judges should select. We'll be giving away a $100 gift card to one lucky person who leaves a comment.
