Send in your doppelgängers and collect massive booty

Apparently, it's doppelgänger week, where Facebook users are encouraged to change their profile photo to someone they've been mistaken for. But it's always doppelgänger week at StopPress. We are shameless in our pursuit of lookalikes (and men who look like old lesbians), so send in your best stunt doubles/doppelgängers/uncanny resemblers, either of yourself, famous people or unsuspecting friends and family, and the best of the bunch will be plied with amazing prizes.Amazing prizes include:

  • Tebe face products

  • Eco-store soap

  • A few six-packs of Monteith's beer

  • Media magnate Harold Mitchell's book Living Large

  • A Finding Flavour foodie discovery tour of Auckland

  • Two $20 vouchers for the new Shortland St-based fruit stall The Honesty Box (they're also doing custom made 'corporate boxes' of fruit, glorious fruit)

  • A diary from 2009
