The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

The 14th annual dream car contest is back!

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. The contest will be open to entries until 5th February 2021.

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.

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?

The contest will be open to entries until 5th February 2021.

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 $5000 and $10,000 for your school to spend on educational resources!
