If your kids are already bored at home because of the near-global quarantine, Rolls-Royce has an idea.
The British manufacturer of ultra-luxury automobiles wants kids to start drawing their own dream cars. In fact, Rolls-Royce is even launching a new contest for it: the ‘Young Designer Competition’.
The competition was launched by the British marque as a way to provide parents and children with a welcome distraction during the on-going pandemic that has forced families to stay home. It also provides a means of keeping people at home by drawing cars instead.
Aspiring designers up to 16 years old may join the competition and design their dream Rolls-Royce of the future. The luxury automaker didn’t release any specifics on what car the kids should draw. Instead, they are encouraging their imaginations to run wild and let their creativity levels to rise to the fullest.
One such example even shows a sketch turned into a render of a “crabmobile”, complete with pincers. So yeah, let your kids design whatever they want and let them go as wild as possible.
Rolls-Royce says the open design is similar to how they offer nearly limitless possibilities when it comes to customization of their vehicles. From paint to embroidery, down to custom art pieces and the Starlight Headliner, anything is possible. Well, as long as you have the money to pay for it that is.
The automaker’s design team will be judging all entries and select an overall winner and runners-up. The owner of the top entry will receive a digitally rendered illustration of their design as well as a chauffeur-driven journey in a Rolls-Royce Phantom for their first day back to school, together with their best friend. Runners-up will receive a hand-signed certificate from Torsten Müller-Ötvös, the Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Here's the important bit: the Young Designer Competition isn’t limited to Europe or the UK as Rolls-Royce has opened up the competition to a worldwide audience. So yes, a Filipino could win in this design competition.
Young designers may submit their designs for the competition here.
