Rolls-Royce announces children’s drawing contestApril 11, 2020
The British carmaker wants young designers to create the craziest vehicles imaginable, because sometimes kids have the best ideas.
Sometimes children do the craziest things, and when it comes to their imagination, some of their ideas can be called crazy. Rolls-Royce knows this, so in these difficult times, when everything that we hear around us is focused on Covid-19, the company turns to children to bring us a little joy.
What happens if we let the children’s world develop a new car? It probably would have looked like a Tesla Cybertruck, but there are still a million possibilities that Rolls-Royce wants to explore with a new competition open to children under the age of 16. Maybe your child will develop a spaceship inspired by the future Rolls-Royce Ghost, or perhaps the successor to the Rolls-Royce Dawn, inspired by birds.
A competition of young designers was organized to provide parents and children with a new form of entertainment during self-isolation, focusing on designers of the future and allowing their fantasies to break out, even if their bodies are limited to their homes. Persons under the age of 16 are advised to create a design, regardless of whether it is drawn with a pencil or using a computer, and the materials should be presented on a special website: www.rolls-royceyoungdesignercompetition.com.
Applications are accepted until May 18, 2020, after which the Rolls-Royce development team will determine the main winner. As a prize, the winner will receive a visualized illustration of his creation and will be delivered to school with his best friend on the first day of school at Rolls-Royce Phantom. The school will also receive a Greenpower electric car prize for participating in the Greenpower Goblin Challenge in the UK. Taking into account the high level of creativity, awards will also be given for second place, and the winners will receive a certificate signed personally by Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos.
The British manufacturer of ultra-luxury cars is proud of its creativity and for many years has been a pioneer in such innovative design elements as the Spirit of Ecstasy figure on the hood of the car or the innovative Starlight Headliner, which imitates the clear night sky in the salons of the world’s best luxury cars. The contest organizers hope that this event will bring some light in this dark time and inspire us when we need it most.
