The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

Will return next year

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…Unfortunately we won’t be running the 14th annual contest this year but it will return for 2020.

What is a dream car?

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 2019 – Unfortunately we won’t be running the 14th annual contest this year but it will return for the following year.

How to get involved
Who can participate?


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.

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?


Unfortunately we won’t be running the 14th annual contest this year but it will return for the following year.

What can I win?


First, you’ll be entered into our Irish competition with a cool prize awarded for the three best drawings selected by our jury in each age category: under 8, 8-11 and 12-15 year-olds. The lucky prize winners will receive their prize and certificate and secondly, the 9 winners will be entered into the worldwide art contest. If your artwork makes the final, you could win a trip to Japan with your parents and the opportunity to participate in the award ceremony.
