MEN and women of all ages have come out to compete in Bilbao’s annual ‘ugly competition’ contorting their faces into the foulest expression they could manage – the uglier, the better.

The contest provided a bit of comic relief amid the ongoing economic crisis, proving that Spaniards have not lost their sense of humour.

It was the highlight of Bilbao’s ‘Big Week’, a nine-day festival which started in 1978 which features fireworks, concerts, and bullfights along with food stands and dancing in the streets.
