Background: If there is one subject that finds complete unanimity among the women of the world, it is the old-fashioned question of hats.
North of south, east or west, the problem is always the same - how to find something new that has not already been worn by your neighbour.
Rivalry in hat design has now reached such heights in Scandinavia that every year a hat competition is held between the countries of the Scandinavian pact - Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.
Big prizes await the winner who will be selected from among the six finalist - two representing each of the three countries.
Oslo was the scene of the final qualifying round on Sunday, June 1st, when almost the entire capital turned out to watch the big parade of contestants.
Braving the comments of thousands of critical spectators, the contestants paraded in wild variety of creations before the two final winners were chosen to represent Norway in the final.
