The 11th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

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… This competition is now closed.

This year’s winners

As Toyota, we believe that dreams can take you anywhere, wherever you are. This year, artworks exceeded 700 artworks from all categories combined! Below are our local winners from the 7th local Toyota Dream Car Art Contest which are off to Japan to enter the 11th World Toyota Dream Car Contest. Good luck to them all!

How to get involved

Who can participate?

You have to live in Cyprus and fit into one of these three age categories: Under 8s; 8-11 year olds; 12-15 year olds. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about the contest, too. Maybe even ask your teacher to turn it into a class project.

What artwork and material do I need?

Take an A3 size paper (A4 size is OK too) and use any medium you like – pencils, crayons, paint – to create your dream car. Don’t forget a background, so we can imagine what it would look like in its environment. And remember: only hand-made drawings are acceptable, so don’t use a computer to do it.

When do I need to create my entry by?

The closing date for entries is February 15, 2017.

What can I win?

First, you’ll be entered into our local Cyprus competition with Vouchers from Bionic up for grabs in each age category. Then, the winners of each category will be entered into our worldwide art contest. If your design makes the final, you could be jetting off to Japan on a trip of a lifetime for the world-final ceremony in August 2017 just like last years local winner Alex Dzaghigian who was awarded Best Finalist in 4th place at the World Contest in Japan.

How do I get inspired?

There are so many ways to find inspiration that can help you imagine your car of the future: create a list, appreciate nature, talk to your family, draw some doodles, play a word association game, take a walk, read a book, flick through a magazine, window shop, watch a movie, go to a museum, share ideas with friends – or just sit down, close your eyes and let your imagination run wild.
