Ela Motors keeping art contest in top gear


Ela Motors held a ceremony to judge artwork for the ‘Toyota Dream Car Art Contest—Local Contest’ last Saturday at its head office in Badili, Port Moresby.
The contest invited children from all corners of the globe to share ideas about the future of mobility by drawing their dream cars.
Every great idea is born in the glimmer of a dream and Toyota hopes that this activity will help nurture the creativity of the next generation of great inventors, thinkers and dreamers.
Since 2004, the ‘Toyota Dream Car Art Contest’ has been conducted as part of Toyota’s social contribution initiatives.
In 2015 alone, there were 875,000 entries from approximately 81 countries and regions around the globe.
In Papua New Guinea, from Nov 2017 to Feb 2018, Ela Motors received more than 300 entries from around the country.
Among the entries, one from each category, was selected as winner, and entered as representatives for PNG into the world contest in Japan.
There were two panels of judges: Judging panel one and judging panel two.
Judging panel one included Ela Motors management team of Ashley Huston (general-manager, Badili) and Donna Nagul (assistant dealership manager, Waigani).
Also on board were Sheena Hughes and Denise Girey from EMTV.
The second judging panel included Ben Johnson (training and development manager, Ela Motors), Dan Power (Yamaha operations manager), Veronica Marshall (The National), Prue Go (Paradise Cinema) and Michelle McGeorge (The Nature Park).
