Even though I use Sony Vegas and After Effects and Photoshop, I could pull up WMM and punch out a video and you wouldn't think it was even made with WMM. It's not about the program but about your knowledge of said program and skill. Also, it's about fun. You also do realize that a lot of commercials you see on TV are made using WMM right? Sounds pretty professional to me.
I'm leader of Studio Vantype, and I've never put pressure on peopel I've recruited to get used to a new program other than the one they are using. The program you are most comfortable with at that time will render out the best result sof yoru editing since you are most familiar with it. You can always learn a new program over the course of your stay in a Studio. That rule about WMM just urks me. I'm not trying to be rude or mean, I'm just trying to offer a little advice. By saying no WMM, you are drastically cutting audition videos down. Since a majority of people who edit still use that program or only edit for fun using that program. Obviously, WMM is not meant to be a competitive editing program when it comes to AMV competition, but you can still put out some pretty good AMV's using WMM. You'd be surprised. Just saying don't be so quick to judge people using the program or judge the program itself.
The other problem I see is the 20 second minimum bit. Thats not really a good length. You can't really measure skill or anything about the video entered from 20 seconds of footage. Anyone can make 20 seconds look good. It's the long haul you have to look at. Can they maintain flow. Can they keep up a good pace. Do transitions run smoothly, does it tell a story, how are the hard cuts, effects usage and how well you blend them or make them part of the story etc. etc.
Like I said, I'm just offering some advice. I wish you luck in your auditions
