Subaru Canada ran a contest with the artist web site deviantART to see how wild imaginations would treat the theme of Driving Confidence. For three weeks, creators in any medium were asked to upload "original creations that celebrate the bold design, superior handling, and meticulous engineering that Subaru vehicles are renowned for."

The contest specifically instructed artists to "push your creativity to the limit," which is why there are plenty of images out of our species and galaxy. The first place winner (pictured) won $2,500 for "Born to Rally in the Snow," the second place getter got $1,000 for "Unleash the Beast," third place took $500 for "Subaru Slot Car Set," and the runner-up was "Subaru Impreza WRC Rally 'The Pass 2'."

All of the entries are on display now in a "space-defying gallery" in Subaru's booth at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toroto, and in our gallery of high-res images.

      Is it just me or does the polar bear look like he has just made that Imprezza his b****?

        That's exactly why with the next generation STI, it won't be called an Impreza. It'll actually be its own model.

      #1: Even the god of horny polar bears can't keep up with Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive.

        The polar bear's positioning is quite suspect....and the logo in the sky looks out of place/not blended well.

      Does this make up for the fact Subaru Canada charges us ~30% more for a WRX than our US neighbours? And yes, I did mean to spell neighbours that way!

      #2. The slot car track. That looks like a genuine box for the actual slot car track and cars lol.

      I think the last one is one man's expression of anger that the base '12 Impreza comes rollin' on 15's
