Toyota Dream Car Art Contest 2022

Flying cars, zero emission hoverboards, space buggies for moons and planets…who knows what the future of mobility will look like? So, every year Toyota invites children across the UK to share their wildest and most imaginative car design, as entries for the Dream Car Art Contest.

The global contest has attracted more than 6.2 million entries from children in more than 100 countries worldwide since 2004, so you don’t want to miss out on the 15th annual competition. Previous winners’ designs have featured a car that provides homeless people with a place to stay for the night, nanoscopic ‘bumper cars’ with healing properties, and a car that cleans the ocean.

Entries for Dream Car 2022 are now closed, but you can read on to find out more about the contest and our previous winners.

Who Can Enter?


Anyone who is under 15 years old, who lives in the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland or the Channel Islands, can enter the Dream Car Art Competition, with entries split into three categories:

(1) Category 1: Under 8 years old
(2) Category 2: 8-11 years old
(3) Category 3: 12-15 years old

When can I enter?

This year’s contest is now closed, with entries having been open between 11th October and 31st December 2021. The UK winners will be announced in February 2022, and Dream Car 2023 will be launched in the Autumn.

What’s the Prize?


The top three best artworks will be selected in each category in the UK contest, with the Gold winner receiving an iPad, Silver and Bronze winners receiving a Samsung tablet and all winners receiving a Toyota goody bag. Winners will be announced in February through an online ceremony.

All UK bronze, silver, and gold winners will be put forward to the World Contest, in which a grand prize winner from each category and two special award winners will be selected. Each winner will receive $5,000 to spend on educational resources and supplementary prizes of $10,000 will also be awarded to their school or college to spend on educational resources. So, all that is left to say to those who have entered this year is good luck and dream big!
