World Palindrome Championship 2 !!!

Will Shortz has announced that the second ever World Palindrome Championship will take place in 2017 at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. The exact time and place has not been set, but it will most likely happen in New York City or Stamford CT, in late March of 2017 -- perhaps Friday March 24th or Friday March 31st.

There will be probably be prelinimary rounds to accommodate all the entrants this time around. A film crew will be recording it for a feature documentary.

New Documentary

Filmmakers Vince Clemente and Adam Cornelius have completed a short film about the first World Palindrome Championship and its winner, Mark Saltveit. You can view the film for free at Vimeo.com.

Meanwhile, they just completed a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to expand it into a feature film. The movie will follow the competitors in the lead up to the March, 2017 big event and culminate in the finals of the World Palindrome Championship II.

"Weird" Al Yankovic interviews for the big palindrome movie.

A huge star sat down with Vince Clemente to talk palindromes Wednesday. Rumor has it that he said Jon Agee's cartoon books inspired his hit song "Bob."
