The ECCU "Video Minute" contest is a joint project of the Citizen CPR Foundation and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation. The 2012 videos were reviewed, scored, and ranked by a panel comprised of representatives of both organizations, using a set of evaluation criteria.
The father-son team of Magnus Backstrom and Wilmer Ansgariusson, from Kavlinge, Sweden, won first place in the 2012 ECCU "Video Minute" contest for their entry, "Stayin' Alive."
Tying for second place were the Max Schweitz Foundation with its entry, "CPR Hero," and the Hawaii Heart Foundation with its entry, "Super Hero."
A public service announcement by the Medtronic Foundation, "Heart Rescue Now," came in fourth place, followed by "Crowdsourcing Good Samaritans," by Pulsepoint in fifth place.
The "Official Jennifer Coolidge AHA Hands Only CPR PSA," the "Official AHA Hands-Only CPR Instructional Video," and "AEDiva" by AED Petition Now received honorable mention.
The first place winner received an automated external defibrillator, donated by Physio-Control, along with the SCA Foundation's popular Push Hard & Fast Here t-shirts.

In 2010, we partnered with the Citizen CPR Foundation for our semi-annual video contest. While our previous video contests focused on schools, this one was open to all interested parties. Applicants were asked to submit videos or public service announcements designed to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and emergency cardiovascular care, including CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs).
Winning videos, selected by a joint panel of experts, were announced and aired at the Citizen CPR Foundation's Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update in December. Here are the winners:
