Nominations open for Hirsute Personality 2016 accolade

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with Beard Week set to bristle off to a start on 27thh June it has launched the annual search for Hirsute Personality of the Year.

Last year urban cheesemaker Philip Wilton of Wildes Cheese in Tottenham won the vote for the accolade

The shortlist will comprises well known beard wearers, focusing not just on their place in the public eye but the gravitas and impact their beard adds to their public image and appearance.

Unlike the Beard of the Year in December, those on the short-list don’t need to have a full time beard. Rather they need to have been in the public eye while hirsute. Neither is the contest about who has the ‘best’ beard.

The winner of the on-line poll which opens on 11th June will be announced at the beginning of Beard Week 2015 on June 27th. Other Awards that feature during the week, designed to promote a positive image of beards, are the Beard Friendly Sandwich of the Year, Hirsute Broadcaster of the Year and the Beard Friendly Employer of the Year.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett We are looking as ever for superb examples of hirsuteness in the public eye which also add gravitas. It means a beard plus presence. That is what we are looking for: maximum hirsute impact

Nominate here (previous  winners Brian Blessed and Philip Wilton are automatically on the 2016 shortlist)
