2015 Toyota Dream Car Art Contest: Winners announced

Making the world a cleaner, safer place proved a priority among the top entries in the 2015 Toyota Dream Car Art Contest.

Hundreds of entries were received for the competition, which encourages children aged eight to 15 to combine their imagination and their creative skills to design what they think would be a great car for the future.

The best entries went on display at Toyota (GB) PLC’s Surrey headquarters, where staff members were able to vote for their preferences in each age group. Final judging then produced three winners in each of the three age groups, all of whom were invited to a prize-giving reception at the HQ building.

The occasion was hosted by Matt Harrison, President and Managing Director of Toyota GB, who congratulated the young designers on their skills and insights into how cars can be developed in exciting new ways. The winners each received Apple products, a goody bag and a certificate to mark their achievement. Their success in the UK competition will see their work go forward for the chance of winning a trip to Japan as part of the global Toyota Dream Car Art Contest.
