Since 2004, the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest has been conducted as part of Toyota Motor Corporation’s social contribution initiatives. It gives children throughout the world the opportunity to develop an interest in cars and helps them feel the joy and importance of having a dream.
Now, the 10th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is being held in Oman, in Association with the Ministry of Education. This follows the success of the previously held Art Contests. The contest’s theme is “Your Dream Car". Toyota is providing this unique opportunity for kids to display their talent, ‘Share the drawing of a car of your imagination with us and stand a chance to win a trip to Japan.’
“We are giving the kids a blank canvas … and then watching them paint their dreams on it” remarked a Saud Bahwan Automotive spokesperson, “It is a real joy to see their free and unfettered artistic expressions.”
The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest invites children from all corners of the globe to share ideas about the future of mobility by drawing their dream cars. The aim is to kindle their creative imagination. According to an official source, the kid’s expression will reflect their thoughts and aspirations, “How will your dream car make the world a better place?”
