Lilly Oncology strives to build a connection to people with cancer, as well as those who care for them. That’s why we created Oncology On CanvasSM, a way for anyone affected by cancer to tell his or her story through creative expression.
Helping people with cancer and those who care for them cope with the emotional impact of the disease was the motivation behind Lilly Oncology’s creation of the Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition in 2004.
The 2014 Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition marked the sixth competition and 10-year anniversary celebration. The competition presenters, Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), invited all residents of the United States and Puerto Rico who had been touched by cancer, to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give meaning to their cancer journeys. Those with cancer, as well as their family members, friends, caregivers, and healthcare professionals, were invited to participate.

Following the announcement of winners, the art and narrative will not be returned to entrants.
Much of the artwork will be exhibited at cancer centers, hospitals, and patient advocacy group events in the United States and Puerto Rico. The artwork and narrative may also be televised and/or featured on the Internet, in print, and other types of media. Entries may also be used for any of the following purposes and related materials (print and electronic): public relations, training and education, advertising, research, and/or sales and marketing. In addition, some of the entries will be featured in the Lilly Oncology On Canvas educational book (if there is one created), on LillyOncology.com, and in other media designated by the competition presenters.
Following a tour of entries, Lilly Oncology On Canvas may also transfer ownership of the artwork or portions thereof, either original or copies, to the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, or other nonprofit cancer-related advocacy groups or charitable organizations. In this case, the entries will be used in their fund-raising efforts or for other appropriate purposes, with no payment to the artists and writers and no financial benefit to Lilly Oncology. Ownership of the artwork may also be transferred to cancer centers, hospitals, or other healthcare facilities.
Since there can be many exhibits that happen simultaneously, we cannot guarantee that your submission will be on display at a Lilly Oncology On Canvas exhibition near you.
If the presenters decide to create a Lilly Oncology On Canvas educational book, they will assess all entries to determine which to include. While winning entries will likely be incorporated, presenters cannot commit to including any artwork beyond the winners’ entries.
