Toyota’s annual Dream Car Art Contest is back and Toyota Canada is offering Canadian “dream car” artists a chance to win tablets and an all-inclusive trip to Japan.
In addition, the top entries in each of three age categories will have the opportunity to include a copy of their artwork in a time capsule that commemorates Toyota's first 50 years in Canada.
Toyota Canada invites Canadians to encourage their children to be the innovators and designers of tomorrow by using their imagination and creativity to create their ultimate “dream car.”
The contest is open to parents or guardians of children up to 15 years of age, in three age categories: under 8 years, 8-11 years, and 12-15 years. Entries can be submitted by mail beginning October 9, 2014 through February 27, 2015.
“It is a joy to see how imaginative children can be,” said Seiji Ichii, President and CEO of Toyota Canada. “Nurturing that creativity at an early age is very important. It lays the foundation for the innovative thinking later in life that will result in the designers and engineers of tomorrow’s vehicles.”
Last year, four of the nine Canadian winners were among the top 90 global submissions from more than 660,000 total entries in 75 countries.
One winner and two runners-up will be selected in each age category based on expressiveness of message, uniqueness and artistry.
Each of the nine winners will receive a 7-inch, 8GB tablet with WiFi, along with the opportunity to be entered as Canada’s representatives in the world contest.
Ten finalists will be selected for each age category from all the global entries. In August 2015, each global finalist (and his/her parents/guardians) will be invited to visit Japan on an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the award ceremony.
