An 11-year-old from Watford has won a global art competition for her ‘Life on the Moon’ drawing.

Katie Moiseeva, from Watford, got a silver award in the final of the 2023 Toyota Dream Car Art competition.

She received the ‘Best Finalist’ prize, which included £2,367 and a framed certificate for her drawing, which depicts people living on the moon and an electric car that has a library and shop in it.

Katie said: “I would like to say a big thank you to Toyota. This was a great opportunity to share my dreams of the future.

“I will probably buy a new upright piano, as music has always had a special place in my heart. I will also certainly buy a new set of watercolours and paint brushes.”

She was one of 780,000 entries from 90 countries, who all took part in the contest which aimed to inspire and encourage young people to think about future mobility and how it might help people and the planet.
