Lilly Oncology On CanvasSM: Expressions of a Cancer Journey is an art competition and exhibition that honors the journeys people face when confronted with a cancer diagnosis. The biennial competition invites individuals diagnosed with any type of cancer, their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers, to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.
Lilly Oncology On Canvas is presented by Lilly USA, LLC, in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), which advocates for quality cancer care for all Americans and provides tools and resources that empower people affected by cancer to advocate for themselves.
Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges, typically including past winners, cancer survivors, leading oncologists, journalists, representatives from patient advocacy groups and the competition art director. The end result is a compelling art collection that provides insights into the wide range of emotions experienced by those touched by cancer. Artwork from the Lilly Oncology On Canvas competition is touring hospitals, cancer centers and patient advocacy group events.
Since the competition was created in 2004, more than 3,600 individuals have submitted artwork and narratives.
The 2014 competition was recently launched. Find out more about the call for entries.
