It's that time of year again. When outdoor parties turn into bonfires rather than grill-outs, when Sundays become dedicated to tailgaiting, and when we celebrate men's health and facial hair. While most of us will be observing Thanksgiving this November, another big holiday coming up is Movember, a month-long worldwide facial hair party. During this time, men stop shaving (or proudly rock what they already have) at art parties, rock shows, and bar crawls. Proceeds from these events benefit men's health organizations.
City Pages is getting into the Movember spirit for the fifth year in a row with our Show Us Yer 'Stache contest. We're inviting folks to share their awesome looks -- be they dandy, burly, trimmed, waxed, dyed, or furry -- with our readers for a chance to win some kick-ass prizes.
This year's contest is a little different, so read closely after the jump. Here's how to enter:
In past years, we have opened the contest up to anyone with crazy-cool facial hair. This year, we want to reward the guys who grow their 'mos for Movember.
To enter to win, we'll need you to send TWO images: One from November 1, when you started your mustache journey, and another image from November 30 showcasing whatever facial hair you ended up with. Submission can be sent to: [email protected].
Do you have a few thoughts to share about your look? We want to hear about it. Please share your story in the email!
City Pages staff will then select the top contenders. Pictures and quotes will be posted online for our readers to decide who rocks their 'stache best later this month. Entries must be received by Sunday, November 30.
So what's at stake? We'll be announcing our prize package in two weeks. The winner will have to pick up his prize in at our office, so no Photoshop, prosthetics, or submitting googled images. We'll be waiting to see your awesome 'stache in person.
