Toyota Dream Car Art Contest 2015/2016

The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest for 2015 & 2016 is officially launched today, and at Ron Brooks we’re getting very excited about it.

For the first time in the history of the 10-year old competition, Ron Brooks in both Ilkeston and Mansfield will be encouraging schools in the Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire area to take part, with the great prize of Alton Towers tickets for a family of up 4 for entries submitted to Ron Brooks.

About the Dream Car Art Contest

Now in its 10th year, the contest invites children from all over the world to draw their idea of the dream car, and “share ideas about the future of mobility”. Because children have vivid imaginations largely untainted by reality, previous dream car entries have been filled with ideas and hints that could be used to better our society. Toyota Global President Akio Toyoda sits on the judging panel of the worldwide contest, and he knows a thing or two about cars!

What is a “Dream Car”?

The beauty of this contest is that the dream car can be anything a child can imagine. Previous entries (some of which you can see below) feature a vehicle shaped like a snail, a rocket and one that is disguised as a tree and catches Rhino poachers.

Who can enter?

There are three age categories to be judged:

7 and Under



You must also be a UK resident to enter this competition.

Are there any restrictions?

The only rule for the artwork is that it must be done by hand – no computerised images are allowed. You can however use pen, pencil, brush or any other type of hand tool to complete you drawing. It is recommended that the artwork is done on A3 paper, but A4 is also perfectly acceptable.

When is the closing date for entries?

The deadline for entries for this year’s Ron Brooks contest is December 14th. This allows us enough time to judge the entries we receive and send them on to Toyota GB for the national competition.

What is the prize?

There are three stages of prizes for entrants into each category.

Stage 1 – The Ron Brooks Award – Alton Towers Tickets for a family of 4.

Stage 2 – The Toyota GB Award – an iPad

Stage 3 – If your design is good enough to be selected for the world final, you could be jetting off to Japan for the world-final ceremony in 2016.

What do I do now?

If you’re a teacher or member of staff at a school reading this, then get in touch with Nathan Dale at Ron Brooks on 07824 709312 or email to find out more about how your school can get involved.

We will forward your entry on to Toyota UK after deciding our own winner of the Alton Towers prize.

Alton Towers Prize consists of 1x Family pass for 2 Adults & 2 Children or 1 Adult & Three Children.
