Launched in 2004, Oncology On Canvas is a biennial art competition that invites people from the U.S. and Puerto Rico diagnosed with any type of cancer, as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers, to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give the cancer journey meaning.


The winners of the 2008 competition were announced on October 22, 2008 in New York City.  In total, 26 prizes were awarded to 20 cancer charities selected by the 19 winners in various categories.  The themes explored in the nearly 600 entries ranged from fear, to the loss of individualism, to the support of family and friends, to the memory of those lost, to the perseverance of those who survive.


The traveling exhibition of art from the 2008 competition will tour hospitals, cancer centers, patient advocacy group meetings, and other venues nationwide during 2009. 
The 2010 competition, including a call for entries, will be announced in the fall of 2009.
