Dream Car 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.
We now have our 2022 Dream Car Art Contest winners – watch our ceremony video below to find out if you’re one of them!
The top three artworks have been selected in each age category, with the Gold winner receiving an iPad, Silver and Bronze winners receiving a Samsung tablet, and all winners receiving a Toyota goody bag.

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.
