I also ruled out 'searcH AREa' because there was no preamble in the entry form (prepared as per JEG's instructions / requests).
Did any of the successful entrants KNOW that their entries were correct before seeing the published solution?
I highlighted the only H A R E in the grid through which a straight line could be drawn (just) without touching any other letters.
But I don't hold hope that this will be marked correct - it wasn't what the setter had in mind.
The prize draw, I gather, is performed after trimming all entry forms to roughly the same dimensions (for fairness to all).
I wonder whether or not all the 'correct' hares were physically excluded from the draw.
