Wet Shaving Infographic Competition [Update]

Listen to this article

A couple announcements to the wet shaving infographic competition!

A couple weeks ago I posted the first in a series of articles getting back to the fundamentals of traditional wet shaving:

Old School, Traditional Wet Shaving: What You Should Know Before Starting Your Shave (Part 1)

At the end of the article I announced a competition for an “Infographic” to be added to the post, with a prize worth over US $1000.

One problem though….

I just found out the submission form was misconfigured and none of the submissions were saved.

Yes, I feel like a fool (I had tested it on my “staging site” and it worked fine).

If you submitted an infographic you will need to return to the competition submission page and re-submit.

To help make up for my screw-up I’m extending the deadline for submissions to 29 October 2021

And, through the generosity of the contest’s sponsor, OneBlade, the prize has been upgraded to include:

  • Limited Edition Black OneBlade GENESIS (not to be confused with a OneBlade Hybrid razor) Razor (1 of 100 made in this unique black finish)
  • Black Leather Travel Holster
  • 90 Feather FHS-10 Blades
  • OneBlade x Thater Silvertip Badger Hair Shave Brush
  • Black Stainless Steel Brush Stand
  • Black Tie Shave Cream (150ml)
  • Black Tie Aftershave Balm (90ml)

This set is worth over US $2500!

There are a number of free web resources for creating infographics, including Canva, Venngage, Snappa, Piktochart, visme, and Infogram.

What is an infographic? Like Wikipedia says, it’s a “graphic visual representation of information, data, or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.” For some inspiration, here is an example of an infographic I came up with a few years ago about how long it takes to shave:
