To fault a dnb track for not enough vocals is just like saying that an ambient track doesn't have enough beats. With the exception of "dj? acucrack", dnb doesn't use "traditional" vocals.
If you take all 3 remix comps together, 80% of the top 10 entries are dance/house/club or related genre's. I guess that's the judges preference? Can you actually objectively access the merits of another genre you don't like or listen to? I wouldn't know the first thing of trends in trance music. As someone with classical training, I could judge the musicality of it but would that mean it's a great trance song? Probably not. Unless you make dance/house/club music, take losing with a grain of salt. As someone also outside of dance/house/club (industrial for me) I feel more comfortable being grouped with your track Luke Satin, then the top 10. I listened to over close to 350 of the entries I think just to see what others were doing.
