The 2015 World Beard and Mustache Championship was held this year in the town of Leogang, in the Austrian Alps. More then 300 men of legend from some 20 countries have come together to challenge each other and see which are the Earth’s most epic beards from 2015.

The contestants compete in 18 categories across three sections: Moustaches, Partial Beards and Full Beards. Each category features three prizes for the best facial hair.

Austrian photojournalist Jan Heitfleisch took countless photos at the event, and he didn’t just feature the winners – they’re all worth checking out!
