We are excited to partner with our friends at Toyota to promote this year’s Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest!

Get your kids’ creative engines started! Unpack the art supplies, unbuckle imaginations, and kickstart the freewheeling designs of what your kids think cars should look like in the future. Then, enter their artworks in the Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest. Submissions created by youth, ages 4-15, are accepted online or by mail starting November 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022.

It’s easy to enter. Kids create an original drawing by hand using digital tools, crayons, color pencils, ink pens, markers, or paint (acrylic or watercolor). With the assistance of an adult, they complete an entry form, which is submitted with the drawing (the original, if sent by mail; an image, if using the online form). Details – with official rules, artwork guidelines, and entry forms – are at www.ToyotaDreamCarUSA.com.

Designed to inspire creativity in youth, ages 4-15, and help them imagine the future of mobility, a total of nine U.S. winners will be announced during March 2022. The top three in each of the three age categories (4-7 years old; 8-11 years old; and 12-15 years old) will receive cash prizes ($750 first place in each age category; $500, second place; $250, third place), ready-to-frame digital scans of their drawings, and award certificates. In addition, their artwork will be submitted to Japan for consideration in the World Contest, along with the nine top entries from nearly 90 countries.

Judging based on three criteria: execution, uniqueness, and artistry of concept. Each artwork submission consists of a drawing by an eligible youth, accompanied by a completed entry form signed by a parent or legal guardian (multiple submissions accepted, but each drawing must be accompanied by a separate entry form).

Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan held the first worldwide contest in 2004. Nearly 90 countries now participate each year under the same rules but with varying artwork submission periods. The free youth contest has been presented in the United States since 2012. The annual contest accepts artwork submitted by parents or legal guardians of children between four (4) and fifteen (15) years of age who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia.
