Hey there, in this unique event we invite children from ages 5 to 15 years to dream and draw the car of the future. Winning entries of the contest will also get the chance to compete at a worldwide level to win a trip to Japan.
Prepare to celebrate great ideas!
What do I have to do?
Think of a challenge
Is there any personal / world problem that you would like your dream car to solve OR any aspect of life that you would like to make better?
Visualize the solution
How will your dream car solve the challenge OR improve life? Think about car design and movement. Capture the car while it provides the solution.
Focus on the details
Your car does not have to be in the center of the painting. Place it in a location that will help explain the idea. And draw the surroundings in detail.
Make the car stand out
Mix colors and create lighter or darker shades in order to give a clear focus on the car.
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 5th March 2017.
Who can enter?
Children 15 years old and younger who live in the UAE. There are three age categories:
Category 1: 5-8 years old
Category 2: 9-11 years old
Category 3: 12-15 years old
How to participate?
You would need an entry form to accompany your drawing. Download the entry form from this page or obtain it from Toyota Dubai Festival City showroom or The Wave Showroom - Musaffah, Abu Dhabi. Please fill in all the necessary items on the entry form, and securely attach it to the back of your artwork. Please see the “Entry method” provided on the entry form for more detailed methods.
Permission of the parent or legal guardian is necessary when entering the contest.
Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about the contest. Maybe even ask your teacher to turn it into a class project.
The top 3 artworks from each age category at the UAE local contest will be announced during an exhibition at Toyota Dubai Festival City showroom where winners will be awarded. At the World Contest, an award certificate and extra prize will be presented to the worldwide gold, silver, and bronze award winners and they will be invited to the award ceremony to be held in Japan.
Submit them to the Toyota Dubai Festival City showroom or The Wave Showroom - Musaffah, Abu Dhabi.
Make sure a parent or guardian signs the entry form, too.
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? These are just some of the things Toyota designers think of when they design cars.
