Cardiac Arrest Survival Video Contest
The Citizen CPR Foundation and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation have created a Cardiac Arrest Survival Video Contest as part of the Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit (CASSummit). The contest is to recognize the best videos aimed at increasing awareness of sudden cardiac arrest and/or recognition of a heart attack, the importance of citizen CPR, and automated external defibrillators (AEDs.)
Videos are reviewed, scored and ranked. The five top-ranked submissions are played for CASSummit attendees during plenary sessions. The winner of the top ranked video is awarded an AED to recognize their efforts and accomplishment.
- Videos must begin with a title and may be no longer than 90 seconds in length.
- File size must be less than 500 MB.
- The following formats are accepted: AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV (Quicktime).
- Entrants set up a YouTube account and upload the video here.
- Emails are sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Title of the video, name of the submitting organization, a name, phone number and email for the primary contact person, and a link to the video.
After the conference, the top videos are featured on the CCPRF and SCA FDN websites, Facebook pages and at https://www.youtube.com/scafoundation.
