Life is a highway… Win the chance to go to the UK premiere of Cars 3!

Lightning McQueen is back in and returning to the racetrack once again in his biggest challenge ever. Edinburgh International Film Festival is thrilled to be hosting the UK premiere of the latest Disney·Pixar film at Festival Theatre on Sunday 25 June, and you can win the chance to be there.

To be in with the chance of winning a range of prizes including tickets to the UK premiere screening and an exclusive animation workshop with a Pixar animator, all you have to do is create your own CARS racing car!

We are looking for you to draw your own ultimate racing car to compete alongside Lightning McQueen in the world-famous Piston Cup. Let your creativity run wild, making it the most imaginative and colourful racing car ever created. Does your car “float like a Cadillac, sting like a Beemer”, or is it a bit rusty like Mater? And don’t forget to give your car a special name!

Winning prizes include tickets to the UK premiere of CARS 3 at Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, CARS merchandise, and the chance to take part in an exclusive animation workshop with Steve Morse, Pixar’s Head of Story for CARS 3.

All entries will also be displayed at the UK Premiere of CARS 3 at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, on Sunday 25 June.


The competition is split into two categories:

• Up to 6 years old
• 7 to 13 years old

Entry forms can be downloaded HERE or hard copies can be collected from the Filmhouse Box Office.

Deadline for entries is 5pm Friday 2 June 2017.
