Eli Lilly begins Oncology On Canvas contest

Pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly Canada has begun an art competition called "Oncology On Canvas." The contest invites individuals who have been diagnosed with any type of cancer, as well as their families, friends or caregivers, to submit works of art expressing their experiences. Entries will be accepted online at <http://www.lillyocc.com> until Sept. 30. Entries will be posted at the website as well as on Twitter and Pinterest. Winners will be selected in 15 categories by a judging panel from the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology and the Canadian Cancer Survivors Network. Prizes will consist of donations to cancer-related charities of the winners' choice. This is the first time Eli Lilly has conducted this initiative in Canada.

"In the United States, this competition has been helping people living with cancer and their supporters for ten years," said Nathan Hubbard, head of the oncology business unit at Eli Lilly Canada. "We're excited to bring this competition to Canada for the first time and provide an opportunity for Canadians to share their journeys and draw from others who share their stories with us."
