After 11 previous unsuccessful attempts, Charles Bicht, 64, of Vero Beach, won the 2010 Ernest Hemingway Lookalike Contest at Key West’s Hemingway Days (other competitions include short story writing and marling fishing), as reported by the AP and reflected upon by the Guardian‘s Alison Flood. The competition is held at Sloppy Joe’s, a favorite bar of Papa’s, and is judged by a panel of past winners (pictured, surrounding Bicht this year). You can see their photos going back to the first competition, in 1981, in the “Papas” section of the online home of the Hemingway Lookalike Society.
