Updated with new deadline
Calling all mustachioed men of GeekWire — lend us your ears — and upper lips. The month of Movember is now over. What do you have to show for it?
A couple of the GeekWire staff have worked diligently on our mustaches (while a few others chickened out). John Cook is sporting the “Woodsman” with illegal goatee while I have the careful beginnings of a blonde “Bandito.”
Perhaps you’ve grown a “dandy.” Maybe you went with the “natural” or even the “lampshade.” And while the “Mark Twain,” and the “Nietzsche,” are impossible to achieve in just one month, perhaps you’re one of the proud gentlemen to grace Seattle with the hallowed “Imperial” as did our 2012 winner Aravanan Sivaloganathan. There might even be a man with a “Magnum” walking around out there.
If so then it’s time to reveal yourself. The 2014 GeekWire Movember Competition is ON!
Entering the competition is easy. Simply send us your stache selfie. We want to see it and we want to judge it. The winner gets a pair of tickets to the hottest holiday party in town — the nearly sold out GeekWire Gala held at MOHAI on December 3rd.
You have until exactly midnight this Monday to send your photo. Email pictures directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, place of work, and title. Remember, a name and brief description of your mustache is acceptable. For instance, “my name is John Cook and this is the “Woodsman.” It’s wild and free just like I am.”
We’ll pick several of the our favorite mustaches and share them with our readers. It’s you, our faithful GeekWire readers, who will choose the winner and send them to the Gala.
Rule reminder: NO BEARDS will be accepted. That means John Cook, if he were allowed to compete, would need to find some shaving cream and do away with the goatee. Soul patches are acceptable as is connecting your mustache to your sideburns via the jowls.
Remember my mustachioed brethren, Monday at midnight is the deadline. We can’t wait to see what you’ve grown.
