The ECCU "Video Minute" contest is a joint project of the Citizen CPR Foundation and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation. The videos were reviewed, scored, and ranked by a panel comprised of representatives of both organizations, using a set of evaluation criteria. All eight videos were played during the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update plenary sessions in September in Orlando.

The Citizen CPR Foundation (CCPRF) and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation (SCA FDN) are partnering on the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update (ECCU) 2012 “Video Minute” Contest. Join us at ECCU on September 11-15, 2012, in Orlando, FL, as we recognize the best videos aimed at increasing awareness about CPR, automated external defibrillators (AEDs), and/or recognition of a heart attack. The contest for outstanding public awareness messaging will be back with best video clips, YouTube videos, public service announcements (PSAs), and other video strategies promoting citizen CPR and AED use.
Develop a video about CPR/AED use, submit your entry for consideration, and find out how you measure up against the competition. A panel of reviewers will evaluate videos on the basis of creativity, production quality, and overall impact.
Videos will be reviewed, scored, and ranked, using a set of evaluation criteria. The five top-ranked submissions will be played for 2012 ECCU attendees during plenary sessions. The winner and four runners-up will be announced during the closing plenary session on Saturday, September 15 at 9:20 am. An AED will be awarded to the creator(s) of the top-rated video. Other prizes include the SCA FDN’s popular “Push Hard & Fast Here” t-shirts. Additional prizes will be announced.
The deadline for submissions is August 17.

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:
