We all know COVID-19 is a Pundemic. So, the 43rd Annual O.Henry Museum Pun-Off World Championships has become an online competition beginning October 17th!

The Pun-Off World Championships this year consists of a virtual competition of punning, done with video submissions, and voted upon by the public online. We call this our Punniest of Show and it works like this.

  • Except for a few invited past winners, a randomization of persons who registered to be contestants will select those who will be invited to enter a Punniest of Show video under 2 minutes in length. The deadline for their entries is midnight Central Daylight Time (GMT -5) October 15th.
  • On October 17, 2020, the pun-tastic entries will be revealed on the website and viewers can begin voting. 
  • From October 17th until October 24th midnight CDT (GMT -5), you, our loyal pun-loving fans, may vote (one vote per person) on all the videos at  First, second, and third place winners with the most votes will be announced the next day on punoff2020. com.
