While having a lot of entries is important, getting people timely feedback is also important. It's a hard balancing act.
I'm not uncertain that quarter-annually would be bad for the contest though. If we had one contest every 3 months, it might not only get more results in, but allow for higher quality of maps because of extended testing and feedback time, and allows for more time to work on detail work on maps (though a fair counterargument would be most of the maps in this seemed pretty detailed).
