As Toyota, we believe that dreams can take you anywhere, wherever you are. So how would your fantasy automobile make the world a better place? All you have to do is think hard and imagine what your dream car would be – like these Irish winners from 2021.

The contest is open to children up to 15 years old. Toyota Ireland organises the Irish contest and accepts entries from the Republic of Ireland.
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 2020/2021 Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is now closed. The contest will reopen later this year.
This years winners of the Irish competition won lots of cool prizes including interactive tablets, instax cameras and fitbits! Each of the 9 winners have also been entered into the worldwide art contest where they could win $5000 and $10,000 for their school to spend on educational resources!
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.
