The 10th edition of the "Toyota Dream Car" art contest

Announcement of the European winners

At the closure of the 10th Toyota Dream Car contest, our jury selected the 9 European winners. Discover the young artists and the dream cars they have imagined for a better future.

Back in 2004 we had a dream to create a contest that would unite the imaginations of children across the world. We wanted bright young minds to develop a keen interest in cars and electrify us with their creations. All we ask of them? Imagine what their dream car would be and how their fantasy automobile would make the world a better place.

At the closure of the 2016 "Toyota Dream Car" European contest, Le Rendez-Vous Toyota received more than 150 drawings in which children pushed the limits of imagination to create their Toyota car of the future. School-cars, vet-cars, vehicles powered by recycled waste or multi-coloured cars that put smiles on people's face: plenty of exciting and inspiring ideas to imagine new ways of mobility for tomorrow.

We thank you all for your participation.

Who are the 9 European winners?

Amongst all the entries, received from France and 6 other European countries, the jury members of Le Rendez-Vous Toyota selected the 3 winners of each age category. We congratulate the 9 young artists whose drawings captivated our jury by their originality and creativity. They will be informed individually and will receive their prize at home very soon.

Category 1 - under 8
Arthur, 7, France. "Ma Voiture Recycle-Tout". My all-waste Recycling Car hoovers the waste and uses it for his engine. There is a solar panel to heat in the car and a pipe for cooling. One can choose the color of the car at the rear.
Paul, 6, France. "Colorissimo". A multi-coloured car, cheerful and bright, and large enough to transport toys. It looks like an animal that spits colored smoke.
Gerrit, 7, Germany. "FlowerPowerSchafCar". My sheep-car keeps the driver warm because it’s enveloped in a layer of wool. Instead of gasoline, the car emits flowers during its ride.
Category 2 - 8 to 11
Laura, 10, France. "Source de Vie". Toyota is source of life in the city.
Axelle, 10, Belgium. "Sushi Maker". If my SushiMaker car will come to Europe, we can buy them everywhere and my mum can play with me instead of making them.
Mariya, 10, Bulgaria. "Vet Clinic on Wheels". It helps all animals.
Category 3 - 12 to 15
Viktorie, 12, Czech Republic. "Perpetual motion machine - All in one". This car is the never ending story. You can drive it and live in it. It's an ideal model for big families.
Jil, 15, Germany. "JS2705". I thought it should also exist “water vehicles” which look cool and still save the environment.
Desislava, 13, Bulgaria. "Toyota Amphibia". Tourist tour on ocean floor with Toyota Amphibia.
What did they win?

Each young artist wins a set of high-tech and customized gifts.

Depending on the age category, the set includes:

-A tablet or a smart robot (who moves and responds to voice!),
-Decorative and everyday products customized with the child’s drawing sublimated by Madame Pop and Kids.

Good luck, winners, the contest is not yet over!

And for our 9 prizewinners, the story is not ending now: they are selected to the World contest and their drawings will be submitted to the jury of Toyota Japan among all the 80 participating countries. The results will be announced in July 2016 and the winners will be invited to Japan with their parents for the award ceremony in August.

We wish them good luck and hope their dream cars will “drive” them to the Land of the Rising Sun, just like Luo and Lucas, who made the final at the 2015 “Dream Car” edition.
