Win a trip to Japan

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!

Denisa Rissa, 8 to 11's Best Finalist
 

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 10th 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 in size*.

How long do I have to create my design?
The closing date for entries is Wednesday 18th January 2017 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. You could 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 19th February 2017. 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 2017 to see your design turned into a real 3D model. You will also get the chance to meet design experts, visit the Toyota Museum of Industry and Technology and look around Toyota’s impressive car plant. Find out more about what you could win in this interview with a past winner.

Help! I’m not sure what to draw…
Need some inspiration? Here are some of the best entries from our previous competitions. 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? Or take a bit of inspiration from 2016 Dream Car winner Denisa Rissa. Denisa, who’s 11 years old, won a Gold award at the National Awards and then went on to win Best Finalist in Japan at the Global ceremony. Her Camouflaging Car idea can blend in with its surroundings, allowing people to be able to study and look at animals without threatening them.
