Toyota’s Dream Car Art Contest takes a new turn this year, with one budding artist being chosen to take their artwork to Japan.
Kiwi kids can draw their dream car, which ultimately may see them winging their way to Japan.
The Toyota global Dream Car competition, which coversmore than 81 countries, encourages young artists up to age 15 to pen their creativity and foster their dreams and imagination through art and design.
The competition invites children from all corners of the globe to share ideas about the future of mobility, putting their artistic impressions on paper of what may be our future mobility, ultimately creating their dream car.
The contest has two elements: the National and World Contests. Winners of the New Zealand contest will be entered as representatives of their own country into the World Contest, to be held in Japan, providing an opportunity for children to develop a wider view of the world.
Since 2004, the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest has been held as part of Toyota’s social contribution initiatives. In 2015 alone there were 875,000 entries from approximately 81 countries and regions around the globe.
Toyota New Zealand has been involved with the Dream Car Art Contest for the past three years. It provides an opportunity to cultivate children’s imagination and artistic expression through the creation of artworks.
In the past two years, winners of each age group section of the New Zealand arm of the competition have won iPad minis.
Marketing Manager Susanne Hardy says, “This year we are delighted to be able to offer one of our winning entrants a special opportunity to go to Japan.”
The competition runs from 1 November 2016 to 15 February 2017. Entries must accompany the official form.
