I think the challenge wanted a "clutch of wires" and the host implied the more the better for the theme. The voters appear to have decided the artful shots were not nailing the real intent of the challenge description.

Can you understand why an outside observer not steeped in the rules worship of the dpr challenges might wonder why the winners were considered exceptional photographs?

The results depend on the voters - in this case a bunch of random dpreview members.  Something eye-catching or humorous is probably going to score well.  The winner may be a snapshot, but it says "Wow that's a big buncha wires!" so it has a kind of humour about it that obviously appealed to enough of the voters. On the other hand, the photograph that came 3rd is a rather striking and well-composed B&W photograph which I like a lot.
