Newer websites need to be developed and have decent web rankings. DMOZ is also human edited, so they can also check out on stability, reliability and if your purpose in submission is for the listing or the PR juice. Its much harder for a 3 day website to be listed than a 3 year website, as a general rule, but content is still king when it comes to listings.
Unfortunately, most of the DMOZ editor are busy and the rest who are "free" mostly are those editor that require some fee to go through your website
