Judging will be strictly conducted in two stages. Submitted artworks will first be judged at the “UK Contest”, with the top three artworks being selected from each age category.

The top three places in each age category will be entered in the World Contest. At the World Contest, the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest judges will choose the outstanding artworks submitted from each country, and select the Gold, Silver, and Bronze award winners, as well as the finalists.

Special award winners will be selected out of the finalists from the World Contest.

The judges’ decision will be final and no further correspondence will be entered into.

The top 3 artworks from each age category at the “UK Contest” will be announced on and prizes including an iPad will be awarded to the winners.

The best finalists of the World Contest (recipients of Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Special awards winners in the World Contest) are invited to the award ceremony to be held in Japan in August 2018. At the World Contest, an award certificate and

extra prize (to be determined by Toyota Motor Corporation Japan (“TMC”)) will be presented to the gold, silver, and bronze award winners.

It is up to each individual prize winner to ensure that they have all appropriate travel documentation in place to allow them entry into Japan.

In the event that an advertised prize is not available or it is impossible or impractical to provide that prize, then we reserve the right to offer an alternative prize of equal value.
