Lahore, 28th June 2018: National Award of the 12th Toyota Dream Art Contest held today to announce 36 winners who will have a chance to compete in World Contest in Japan.
Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is a global initiative organized annually by Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), Japan. The contest, held in around 80 countries across the globe, welcomes children under 16 years of age who are encouraged to bring their imagination in creating dream cars in the form of art. Pakistan has celebrated its victory as Global Winner twice in past years.
Children are broadly divided into 3 categories as per age. Additionally, the contest has a special “Royal” category to encourage differently-abled children as well.
CEO Indus Motor Company Mr. Ali Asghar Jamali said, “Pakistani children are immensely gifted and so is our nation. It is very unfortunate that we do not have sufficient platforms to bring this talent out to its full extent. Dream Art Car Contest is focused on showcasing the talent of Pakistani children to the world. Indus Motor Company has been arranging this contest for the last 6 years and this competition is getting bigger and better every year. This time around, we extended our circle and reached 1,147 schools across Pakistan. Total number of artworks received this year was around 38,000, placing Pakistan in the 3rd position in the world to have received the highest number of drawings,” he added.
“In the future, there is nothing cars can’t do. Cars will not only remain the mode of transportation but will become a resource to help people in need, conserve energy, save endangered species and they will continue to provide entertainment. These are the visions for cars of the young artists and national champions of Toyota Dream Car Art Contest,” said Ms. Meher Afroz, member of jury.
