dream car art contest
What would the best car in the world look like?
Would it have chocolate seats so you could eat them if you got hungry? Maybe it would be powered by sweet wrappers to help recycle rubbish or have really long arms so you could do your shopping without getting out of the car. Think up the coolest futuristic car you can, draw or paint it, and send it to us. Then you could be off to the 9th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest world final in Japan and might even get your design turned into a real 3D model car.
Here at Toyota we’re always thinking ahead, wondering what the cars of the future will look like. It takes a lot of imagination to think of new designs, so we’ve decided to ask the people who might one day be driving those cars – you!
What do I have to do?
Simply draw or paint your dream car and make sure it has a cool background so we can imagine what it’d look like on the road. Or in the sky, or even underground… Don’t forget to tell us how your car works and why it’s the best car in the world. Please don’t use a computer to do it – that’s cheating! And the paper you use must be A3 or A4 in size.
How do I send in my design?Click here to download your entry form
Then post your design and completed entry form to us at: Dream Car Art Contest, Toyota GB plc, Codestorm House, Walton Road, Farlington, Hampshire, PO6 1TR.
Make sure a parent or guardian signs the entry form, too.
How long do I have to create my design?
The closing date for entries is Monday 5th January 2015, so get your thinking cap on!
Who can enter?
You have to live in the UK and fit into one of these three age categories: Under 8s; 8-11 year olds; 12-15 year olds. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about the contest, too. Maybe even ask your teacher to turn it into a class project.
What could I win?
First, you’ll be entered into our UK competition with an iPad up for grabs in each age category and a UK awards ceremony on 20th February 2015. Then, the winners of each category will be entered into our worldwide art contest. If your design makes the final, you could be jetting off to Japan on a trip of a lifetime for the world-final ceremony in 2015. Take a look at this video of the 2014 world-final winners and check out their Vines.
Help! I’m not sure what to draw…
Have a think about what your futuristic car might be made of. Will it be made of recycled material? How will it work? What cool features will it have? These are just some of the things Toyota designers think of when they design new cars. Have a look at these for inspiration. Or take a look at the 2014 winners below.
