A United Hatzalah vehicle.

July 4, 2021

The winner and runners-up of the “Breaking Barriers: Life Saving Video Sharing Contest,” sponsored by the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) and United Hatzalah, have been selected.

Dozens of entries were reviewed for their originality, visibility, and potential impact in the fight against antisemitism.

Contestants from across the globe used their creative talents to demonstrate the Jewish people’s steadfast commitment to making the world a better place and highlight the vibrant diversity of Israeli society.

The winner is Shani Fisher, and the runners-up are Georgia Leatherdale Gilholy and Fitra Wicaksana, with all three receiving cash prizes ($5,000 for the winner and $1,000 each for the runners-up).

A virtual awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, July 21st, at 12 PM EDT. Check back later on the CAM website and social media platforms for access information.

With antisemitism on the rise internationally, the need to confront Jew-hatred and advocate for Israel is more urgent than ever, and CAM hopes contest participants are inspired to continue taking an active role in this vital collective effort.

One important way to do so is sign CAM’s petition demanding Catalan channel TV3 punish commentator Clara Basiana for antisemitism remarks she made live on air about a pair of Israeli competitors at a recent Olympic swimming qualifying event in Barcelona.
