The Mail & Guardian is pleased to announce the winner of the #MGSelfie of the week. For his rather creative selfie, @markdyoungsa won a complimentary six-month digital subscription to the M&G.

@markdyoungsa’s runner-up winner is Mandyl Dewaal (@mandyldewaal) on Twitter. 

Rodger Ferguson (@RodgerFerguson) is one of the M&G readers who is in the top three.
He decided to change the headline of our front page.
