The 13th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

Toyota Cyprus

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...

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 Friday, February 15, 2019.

Under 8 - Global Gold Award Winner Xylone Margareth Andariska -`Alphabet Car` (Indonesia)
8-11 -  Global Gold Award Winner Gazewska Zuzanna Lila - ‘Pavonine Garden’ (Poland)
Under 15 -  Global Gold Award Winner Manivongxay Souksavanh - ‘Architecture and History Car’ (Laos)

What can I win?

At first, you will need to participate in the Toyota Cyprus Dream Car Art Contest, for a chance to win one of our three prizes per age group. Our prizes include an Apple iPad 2018 Wi-Fi 32GB 9.7" for 1st place, a JBL Flip4 Portable Bluetooth Speaker for 2nd place, and an Apple Beats EP On-Ear Headphones for 3rd place.

The best part however is that the winners of each category will then participate in the 13th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest (global event).This means, if your design makes it to the final, you could be jetting off to Japan on a trip of a lifetime for the world-final ceremony in August 2019 with one of your parents or guardian!

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.

You can also take a bit of inspiration from our 2018 Dream Car winners below in this gallery.
