The annual IEEE 5-Minute Video Clip Contest (5-MICC) was launched by the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS), and the selected topic for the competition at IEEE ICIP 2020 was Fight the Pandemic. The organizing committee selected three finalist videos and placed them online for public voting. The first one is about a visual analytic system for pandemic management, the second concerns machine learning screening of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients based on X-ray images, and the third deals with a COVID-19 test strip reader. Taking the public voting results from more than 800 participants into consideration, the panel of judges decided the final rankings of the three videos. In this article, we present an overview of the 5-MICC at ICIP 2020, describing the competition setup, the teams, and their approaches. We also share our experience and the feedback we received from the finalists.
