Today Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) announced the launch of the 2014 Lilly Oncology On Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition. The biennial competition invites individuals from the United States and Puerto Rico, who were diagnosed with any type of cancer — as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers — to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.
Call for Entries
The 2014 Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition is open to residents of the United States and Puerto Rico in three categories: person diagnosed with cancer; family member, friend or caregiver; and healthcare professional. Original artwork that depicts one’s cancer journey may be submitted in one of six media: watercolor, oil, pastel, photography, acrylic or mixed media. The artwork must be accompanied by a narrative. The competition, exhibition, and awards are subject to certain laws and regulations, which may prevent some individuals (e.g., healthcare practitioners and government officials) from accepting the awards, benefits and/or acknowledgements associated with this program.
