A trip to Japan awaits the young artists nominated to the world finals

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, February 8, 2017: Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility and exclusive distributor of Toyota in the UAE, is announcing the start of the third edition of Toyota's global initiative, the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest, designed to inspire creativity in youth and encourage interest in making the world a better place.

It's expected that around 30 schools from the UAE will be participating in this year's edition, across three different age groups: below 7, 8 to 11, and 12 to 15 years old.

“We have seen an increased interest among children and schools over the past two years, and this year we're looking to welcome even more students into the competition as awareness of this initiative continues to grow,” said Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Toyota at Al-Futtaim Motors. “It's really a wonderful thing seeing how children's outlook of the world translates into their art. Children have very interesting views on what the future means of transportation could look like, mainly when related to environmental-friendly mobility, which in their eyes, can make the world a better place.”

In addition to entries through schools, Al-Futtaim Motors invites all children from across the UAE who would like to enter the competition to show up at the Toyota Dubai Festival City and Abu Dhabi Airport Road where all necessary painting and drawing supplies will be provided for the participating entrants.

The two dates for the showroom entries are:

  • February 11th, 2017: Al-Futtaim Motors Toyota showroom in Dubai Festival City
  • February 18th, 2017: Al-Futtaim Motors' The Wave showroom in Musaffah, Abu Dhabi

The last date for submissions is March 2nd, 2017, with a local awards ceremony taking place later in May, 2017.

9 top artworks from the UAE will be submitted to the global contest and those who make it to the final stages will be invited along with their parents or guardians on a trip to Japan to participate in an awards ceremony in August, 2017. While in Japan winners will visit a Toyota factory and get to experience different facets of the Japanese culture.

Last year, more than 850,000 entries from 81 countries and regions around the world were submitted to the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest worldwide
