6th Annual Art of Surviving

Welcome to the 6th Annual Art of Surviving 2023 Gallery!
The Art of Surviving, sponsored by the Raymond A. Wood Foundation, is a juried online art competition held in May every year during Brain Tumor Awareness Month and celebrates the art of the brain tumor community — survivors, caregivers and family members.

Many brain tumor survivors use art as a way to cope with the challenges that come with treatment, a means to calm and focus an injured brain, or an opportunity to express their experiences.

This exhibition is judged by a jury of professional artists and creative writers. Cash prizes are awarded for best in category by age group. 

Over $4,000 in Cash Prizes Awarded
  • $500 Grand Prize Award (Brain tumor patients & survivors only)

  • $3000+ in Awards for Best in Category by age group (Brain tumor patients & survivors only)

  • $700 in People's Choice Awards for each age group including caregivers and family members.


  • Open to all patients and survivors of brain tumors  (will be required to specify tumor type)

  • Open to all caregivers of survivors of brain tumors and their family members (parents & siblings)

  • Work must be original and completed within the last year
