In regards to 2008 BJCP style guidelines, does an American Pale Ale have to use American 2-row or is Maris Otter acceptable within the style?

I've never entered a competition before and I'm so pleased with this beer that I may enter it.

BJCP 2008 Style Guidelines - Category 10

Ingredients: Pale ale malt, typically American two-row. American hops, often but not always ones with a citrusy character. American ale yeast. Water can vary in sulfate content, but carbonate content should be relatively low. Specialty grains may add character and complexity, but generally make up a relatively small portion of the grist. Grains that add malt flavor and richness, light sweetness, and toasty or bready notes are often used (along with late hops) to differentiate brands.
Enter it. What's the worst that can happen?
Bottled: Lots of stuff
On tap: Hefeweizen, Centennial Blonde
