The 11th edition of the "Toyota Dream Car" art contest

Announcement of the European winners

At the closure of the 11th 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. As Toyota, we believe that dreams can take you anywhere, wherever you are. And that sharing children’s ideas makes for a better future. All we ask of them? Imagine what their dream car would be and how their fantasy automobile would make the world a better place.

letterAt the closure of the 2017 “Toyota Dream Car” European contest, Le Rendez-Vous Toyota received a hundred drawings in which children pushed the limits of imagination to create their Toyota car of the future. Fish -cars, solar-cars, vehicles powered by solar panels or cars that can reconnect with nature, people and animals: 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 10 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.

What did they win?

Each young artist wins a set of high-tech, games and customized gifts. Depending on the age category, the set includes either a tablet, as well as a product customized with the child’s drawing.

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 2017 and the winners will be invited to Japan with their parents for the award ceremony in August.
