WHAT IS THE DREAM CAR CONTEST?

The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is designed to inspire bright young minds to imagine the future of mobility.

Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan held the first worldwide contest in 2004. Nearly 6.2 million children from 100 countries now participate each year!

Winners of this youth art contest are chosen from three age categories (7 years and under; 8-11 years old; and 12-15 years old), with judging based on three criteria: message, uniqueness and artistic quality.

The top 3 winners from each of the categories will advance to the Regional and World Contest in 2021.

We believe that today’s dreams can shape our planet’s future. The car of the future could be one that you draw today!

How would you imagine your fantasy vehicle that makes our world a better place? Feel free to express your dream car on paper, may your dreams come true!
