Beard of Winter shortlist: from footballers to union officials & CEOs
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has announced the shortlist for the Beard of Winter 2017 poll.
The list ranges from journalists to, writers, footballers and Chief Executives, but as usual, the key point is whether their beard is helping to create a positive image of the hirsute in public life.
It is the first of four seasonal awards that lead to the Beard of the Year Award in December 2017.
The Beard of Winter focuses both on fuller organic beards, suitable for winter weather but also on beards that have made an early New Year impact in the public eye.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, as ever it is a wide ranging, eclectic, list but one very much focused on the winter season.
The poll closes on Monday January 30th
