Beard of the Year 2020 longlist set to include lockdown beards

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that beards grown during the various lockdowns that have applied across the UK’s four nations at various points since March 2020 will be a factor in determining Beard of the Year 2020.

Author and Arsenal fan Michael Rosen won a vote for the Beard of Lockdown in July 2020 covering the initial all UK-lockdown.

The Beard of the Year longlist will be announced on 16th November with the Beard of the Year announced on December 28th.

The winners will be determined by a series of short on-line polls, different in format to the previously used poll which was felt to be overlong in its duration. Details will be available on Monday.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, lockdown beards have been a significant new departure in the hirsute world in 2020 and we’ll be making sure that the Beard of the Year 2020 contest reflects that.
