Call for Entries: Lilly Oncology on Canvas

Deadline: June 10, 2010

The Lilly Oncology on Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition was developed by Lilly in 2004 as a way to honor those who are impacted by cancer — as a patient, caregiver, friend or family member.

The 2010 competition has officially begun and registration forms are being accepted as late as June 10, 2010. Completed art entries and Submission Forms should be postmarked by June 30, 2010.

The first day of a cancer diagnosis begins one of life's most profound journeys. The Lilly Oncology on Canvas Art Competition and Exhibition provides everyone affected by cancer—those who have been diagnosed with cancer, their healthcare providers, family members, friends and caregivers—the opportunity to express the life-affirming changes that give that journey meaning and to share their cancer journey through art.

Don't worry, you don't have to be a "pro" to participate. While it is a competition and finalists are awarded prizes — the prizes are donated to the cancer charities of the winners' choice - people of
all artistic skill levels are encouraged to enter.

entry forms and details!
