13th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

Call for all those budding artists!
Do you have an artist in your family?

What is a Dream Car?

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…   

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? Why don’t you show us and enter into the 13th Dream Car contest! All you have to do is think hard and imagine what your dream car would be – like these Irish winners from 2018 – then simply draw or paint it and send it to us to enter.

How to get involved?

The contest is open to children up to 15 years old by the 22nd February 2019. Toyota Ireland organises the Irish contest and accepts entries from the Republic of Ireland.

What will you 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.

What can you 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 in August 2019!


The closing date for entries is 22nd February, 2019.​​​​​​ So hurry! Let's get all your Dream Car inspiration down on paper!
