Quiff Comp 2013

Quiff Comp 2013 will take place during the week beginning 20 May.

What’s Quiff Comp, you ask? It’s an annual quiff competition I started with some friends on Twitter a couple of years ago. To get an idea of how it works here’s a Storify of the tweets from last year.

Are there any rules? Of course!

The first rule of Quiff Comp is: tell everyone about Quiff Comp. The more people we can get to take part the more fun it will be.

The second rule of Quiff Comp is: tell everyone about Quiff Comp. Simple.

How to take part 
Entries will be taken between Monday 20 and Wednesday 22 May.

  1. Take a photo of your quiff
  2. Tweet your photo using the tag #quiffcomp13 and one of the following category tags:
    • #child – for anyone under the age of 18
    • #onedayonly – for anyone sporting a quiff for the sole purpose of taking part in the competition
    • #everydayquiff – for anyone who considers a quiff part of their everyday style
    • Anyone taking part in quiff comp for the first time will automatically be placed in the first timers category

Judging will take place on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 May.

  • The three main categories will be voted on by the general public via a series of online polls
  • The first timers category will be judged by the organiser – me!

    And finally, if you need some inspiration I’ve been building up my quiffs board on Pinterest.
