Promising Irish artists under the age of 15 can now enter submissions for the 13th annual Toyota Dream Car Art Contest which encourages children to imagine what their dream car would be and then to share their vision by drawing or painting the ideal car.
The national competition will see nine Irish finalists awarded a range of prizes at the official awards ceremony in Dublin in March 2019, and their winning entries will then compete against other international finalists for a chance to win a once in a lifetime trip to Japan.
The Dream Car Art Contest is Toyota’s unique platform that encourages imagination and creativity amongst children aged 15 and under, encouraging them to look ahead and imagine how to build a better future.

According to Toyota Ireland Marketing Director, Michael Gaynor, the contest had a record number of entries last year.
“This contest is a real demonstration of Toyota’s brand promise of being ‘Built for a Better World’ and it’s fantastic to see the calibre of artworks that come through, along with the creative ideas on what a dream car could look like” Mr. Gaynor said.
“Through this contest we’re encouraging young people to imagine how they can build a better future for everyone and we’re looking forward to seeing their creativity and inventiveness shine through.”
Young artists are being asked to draw or paint their ‘Dream Car’ using standard art materials (digital submissions will not be accepted). All entries must be in colour and include a car and a background or setting on an A3 size paper.
All submissions can be entered by sending it to Toyota Ireland, Killeen Road, Dublin 12 and clearly mark it ‘Toyota Dream Car Art Contest’. The submission must be accompanied by an entry form which can be found on the Official Dream Car Art Contest page. The contest will be open to entries until 15th February 2019.
The nine Irish winners’ works will then go on to compete against international winners for Gold, Silver and Bronze in a global competition with a grand prize of a once-in-a lifetime trip to Japan.
