Toyota's Dream Car Art Contest

What would your dream car look like? Toyota Canada wants Canadian youth to express their vision in their international Dream Car Art Contest. Sandy Di Felice with Toyota says this is the first time Canadians are eligible to participate. "You can't draw your car using any type of mechanical means. It has to be through traditional crayon, marker, pencil renderings. It's a real expression of individual creativity as appose to how design tools can help you create. So it's really about what's in you and putting that passion on a page," said Di Felice. Last year's contest attracted 600,000 entries worldwide, with winning entries from Thailand and Romania. The contest is meant to inspire children?s creativity and reinforce the importance of having a dream, in addition to encouraging their interest in cars. The contest is open to the parents/legal guardians of children ages 15 and under. There are three age categories: nine years old and under, 10-12 years old and 13-15 years old. Submissions will be accepted from February 8 through March 22, 2013. The submissions can be created with any medium of art such as paint, markers or crayons but must not be created digitally. In addition, the artwork needs to be created on tabloid (A3) size paper (11 x 17 inches) and must feature a coloured background. Full entry terms and conditions can be found at: www.toyota.ca/dreamcarartcontest
