Toyota Dream Car Art Contest 2024

Back in 2004 we had a dream to create a contest that would unite the imaginations of children across the world. We wanted bright young minds to develop a keen interest in cars and electrify us with their creations. All we ask them is one thing: imagine what their dream car would be...

The global contest has attracted more than 6.2 million entries from children in more than 100 countries worldwide since 2004, so you don’t want to miss out on the 17th annual competition. 

So, if you have a vision of what the future of mobility could look like, continue reading to find out how you can share this with us and maybe even the world!
