Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

We believe that if you can dream it, you can do it. And now you could use your imagination to win a trip to Japan and even an iPad Mini in the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest.

The Prizes

3 Apple iPad mini devices

Firstly, you’ll be entered into our New Zealand National contest where a jury will pick the top 9 artworks, 3 in each age category. The first place winners in each category will be awarded an Apple iPad mini.

Additional School’s Prize

Also, every school or Early Childhood Education Centre that submits completed entries will be placed in a draw to win one of three Apple iPad Air devices.

Entry into the World Contest

The top 9 artworks selected from our New Zealand National contest will be submitted to the World Dream Car Art Contest, run by Toyota Motor Corporation, held in Japan. 90 countries submit 9 entries each. The top 30 artists from this contest are invited to travel to Japan to go on an adventure and attend an award ceremony. Two parents or legal guardians get to tag along for the ride.

An amazing trip to Japan

An extra contest just for our part of the world!

After the world contest we will select one of the New Zealand National Contest finalists from the top 9 to travel to Japan to go on an adventure and attend an award ceremony. Two parents or guardians get to tag along for the ride.
