Many years back 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.

WHEN DO I NEED TO CREATE MY ENTRY BY?

The closing date for entries is Monday, January 31, 2022.

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 a Nintendo Switch Console Joy-Con for 1st place, a JBL Pulse 4 Portable Bluetooth Speaker for 2nd place, and a Elari Smartwatch Kidphone 3G-KP (1st category), Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite Smartwatch (2nd & 3rd category), for 3rd place.

The best part however is that the winners of each category will then participate in the World Contest in which a grand prize winner from each category and two special award winners will be selected. Each winner will receive $5,000 to spend on educational resources and supplementary prizes of $10,000 will also be awarded to their school to spend on educational resources.

Also 26 winnerswill attend the World Contest in Japan with their parents/guardians, as long as Covid-19 pandemic ends.

This includes computer-generated pictures made using a computer, tablet or phone, as well as scans of artwork created by hand. Artworks submitted this way must be in either .jpg, .png, or .pdf format to be accepted, and please try to save your work in as high resolution as possible.

Collaborative work completed by multiple individuals on a single artwork will not be accepted as entries. To submit a digital entry, please read our terms and conditions ask a parent or guardian to fill the entry form, scan it and send it to us by email with your digital artwork.

Postal Entries

Postal entries can be created using all forms of coloured pencils, markers, crayons and water paints because the artwork must involve colour, so be sure to draw a background too! Entries also need to be on A3 or A4 paper to be accepted.

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 2021 Dream Car winners below in this gallery.
