Toyota Ireland launches 12th annual Dream Car Art Contest

Budding Irish artists aged 15 and under can enter their submissions by February 9th 2018, to be in with a chance to win a trip to Japan

Toyota Ireland is delighted to announce that promising Irish artists under the age of 15 can now enter submissions for the 12th annual Toyota Dream Car Art Contest.

The contest encourages children to imagine what their dream car would be and then to share their vision by drawing or painting the ideal automobile.

The national competition will see nine Irish finalists awarded a range of prizes at the official awards ceremony in Dublin in March 2018, and their winning entries will then compete against other international finalists for a chance to win a once in a lifetime trip to Japan.

The Dream Car Art Contest is Toyota’s unique platform that encourages imagination and creativity amongst children aged 15 and under, encouraging them to look ahead and imagine how to build a better future.

Commenting on the announcement, Michael Gaynor, Toyota Ireland Marketing Director said,


“We’re very excited to launch this year’s Dream Art Contest which had a record number of entries last year. Through the Dream Car Art Contest we want to encourage young people of Ireland to look ahead and imagine how they can build a better future for everyone. This contest is a real demonstration of Toyota’s brand promise of being Built for a Better World and we’re looking forward to seeing the inventiveness and imagination shine from children across Ireland.”

How to Enter:


Young artists are being asked to draw or paint their vision of a ‘Dream Car’ using standard art materials (digital submissions will not be accepted). All entries must be in colour and include a car and a background or setting on an A3 size paper.

All submissions can be entered by sending it to Toyota Ireland, Killeen Road, Dublin 12 and clearly mark it ‘Toyota Dream Car Art Contest’. The submission must be accompanied by an entry form which can be found on the Official Dream Car Art Contest page. The contest will be open to entries until 9th February 2018.

The nine Irish winners’ works will then go on to compete against international winners for Gold, Silver and Bronze in a global competition with a grand prize of a once-in-a lifetime trip to Japan.
