There were 11 all correct submissions in total for the January 2009 Puzzletome Prize Crossword. The winner, drawn at random, is Tony Roberts from Hersham, so many congratulations to him. Thumbs up

Best of luck everyone with the February crossword.

Although there were quite a few submissions, there were actually only 4 all correct for the February 2009 Puzzletome Prize Crossword. It looks like the main problem was with 8d, where many people had STORED instead of STARED.

Congratulations to the winner, Beth Fay from St. Louis, MO. Thumbs up

Good luck to all with the March crossword (there have already been a few entries).

Plenty of correct entries for the March prize puzzle, which was an alphabetical jigsaw. Our winner this month prefers to remain anonymous.

The way it's looking at the moment, April's puzzle is a bit trickier. More chance of winning if you get your entry in, of course!

11 correct entries in the end for the April puzzle (there was a bit of a rush towards the end). The winner is Simon Shaw from Goosnargh.

Hope you enjoy the May crossword and good luck to everyone.

August's winner was Eddie Looby from Birmingham, so congratulations to him. There didn't seem to be too many gotchas with the puzzle, but (perhaps unsurprisingly) nobody found the hidden message (see explanation for details).

Good luck with the September puzzle.

The winner of the March puzzle was this forum's very own JimFromMN, who is unsurprisingly from Minnesota, US. Congratulations to him, and I hope you all enjoy the April puzzle.
