Jakarta – PT Toyota-Astra Motor (TAM) has again held the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest (TDCAC) program for children under 15 years of age. This activity, which is an initiative of the Toyota Group globally, has been carried out since 2004 and has entered the 13th implementation this year.
TAM’s Marketing Director, Anton Jimmy explained, through TDCAC, Toyota invites children to share ideas about future mobility by drawing their dream car. TDCAC also wants to encourage Indonesian children not to be afraid to dream because dreaming can spur the creative process.
“Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is an international drawing contest with the theme of the dream car of the future. The aim is to accommodate children in developing their artistic talents through images of dream cars,” said Anton Jimmy, at the TDCAC 2019 winner announcement, at Kelapa Gading 3 , Jakarta, Saturday (6/22/2019).
This year, the number of works entered into the 2019 TDCAC committee is 7,508 works from 110 schools. The works included in this competition are also very diverse, such as pictures of Toyota City Car with recycled fuel, cars to help blind people can see, cars that can reach difficult terrain, and much more.
TAM today has also announced nine winners from the three age categories competed, namely the age group under 8 years, ages 8-11 years, and ages 12-15 years. One of the nine winners has the right to represent Indonesia in a similar competition for the global level which will be held in Japan in August 2019.
The Indonesian representative is Demian Deven with the title of Dare Duck Car. This car is inspired by Indonesia’s challenging geographical conditions, so Deven has the idea to create a vehicle that can reach various areas that are difficult to pass.
“Last year, one of the representatives from Indonesia, Xylone Margareth Andariska, won the highest award at the global level for the Best Engineering category. We hope that this year Indonesia’s representatives will also be able to revive the nation’s name,” Jimmy said.
