The 2014 Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art competition is now underway!
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2014
Nearly 14 million cancer survivors alive today in the U.S. alone hear the words, “You have cancer.”¹
But these words not only affect them—both physically and emotionally but, also, everyone around them.
Helping patients and those who love and care for them cope with the emotional side of the disease was the motivation behind Lilly Oncology’s creation, in 2004, of the Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition and Exhibition.
The 2014 Oncology On CanvasSM competition marks our sixth competition and 10-year anniversary celebration. The competition presenters—Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS)—invite residents of the U.S. and Puerto Rico, who have been touched by cancer—patients, family members, friends, caregivers, and healthcare providers—to express through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.
To date, more than 4,100 individuals have participated in the competition. Now, it’s your turn to share your story—and you don’t have to be a professional artist or writer to do it. It’s the sharing of the story that counts.
We look forward to receiving your entry and wish you good luck!
