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.
“I would like to fly everywhere with my flying car and help people”
#1 The Flying Car - Daniel Mormoris
“My Toyota car will collect garbage from the sea and will turn them into sweets.”
#2 Chefish - Polydoros Papadopoulos
“Zoomorphic ground ark, just like Noah's ark rescued on our planes from the flood, the Toyota Ark will safeguard life on earth from the potential upcoming disasters.”
#3 Toyota's Ark, Model: Noah - George Chadjikyriacou
" 'Baby' car has kids of all ages as passengers who for some reason are deprived of parental care and leaves them with families who expect them with love."
#1 Adoption baby car - Maria Kashi
"My Toyota will take the unhappy children of Syria and make them happy again.”
#2 Bringing Joy - Petros Papadopoulos
“I would like to fly in the skies of a united Cyprus where there are no barded occupation wires.”
#3 Travelling the skies of Cyprus - Petros Yiannouras
“The Toyota Dragon car protects nature, strengthening the ecosystem and spreading happiness everywhere. The Dragon symbolizes fortune, exploration, modesty and wards off evil.”
#1 Toyota Dragon Car - Alex Dzaghigian
“The phoenix regenerator, regenerates earth from pollution, exhaust gas and ashes.”
#2 The Phoenix Regeneratos Car - Alejandro Hadjisoteriou
“A car that doesn’t block other people's view in which you can just get away from prying eyes.”
#3 Invinsible Car - Maria Zikou
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.
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.
The closing date for entries is February 15, 2017.
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.
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.
