This is an ambitious list for the first year of the photo contest.
Maybe you ought to have a couple of months that are not limited, such as Favorite Ceph Photo. You're probably not going to have many entries in the squid catetory, for instance.

The Photo of the Month is a great idea! Many other sites have similar contests.
