I'd assume it was the use of a very familiar shape (apple?) to portray a very accurate depiction of an official Pokemon sprite. Not to mention the extensive use of shading and aesthetically pleasing curves and lines to create something that is nearly flawless. If it had been bigger and more detailed, I would say it should've won first.
