"Freed" -- This artwork has been chosen to become a Hope Mural in Washington, DC.

“Freed” — This artwork has been chosen to be brought to life as part of the Hope Murals Project in Washington, DC.

The Lilly Oncology On Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition competition was created by Lilly Oncology and presented in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) to help people affected by cancer cope with the emotional side of the disease.

We are pleased to announce that we have extended the submission deadline to August 15th of 2014. It is our hope that the additional time will inspire those touched by cancer to share their journeys. Winners will be announced in October and the artwork and narratives from the 2014 competition will tour the country during 2015 and 2016.

For official contest rules, and submission and entry forms, please visit www.lillyoncologyoncanvas.com, where you can also view galleries of previous entries and connect with Lilly Oncology On Canvas on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest. Please note your submission must be postmarked by August 15, 2014.

Lastly, and to commemorate the 10th anniversary milestone of our 2014 Lilly Oncology On Canvas competition, Lilly Oncology is introducing The Hope Murals Project, a mission to bring 10 murals based on the inspirational art from past competitions to 10 cities across the United States and Puerto Rico.
