If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

The hand and handiwork of Acoma Native American Artist George Miller. The clay used to form the pottery, which is done by rolling long chords and then coiling and shaping it, comes from the land itself. The red-ish color is achieved by grinding up rocks and mixing water into a powdery paste. All the patterns and symbols have spiritual meaning, most often related to rain, lightning and thunder. The kilns used to fire pottery are dug in the ground, and dried manure is used as fuel. George learned his skill from his Grandmother. He sells it year-round by the side of the road at a scenic view stop overlooking the Acoma land and Sky City Pueblo in New Mexico. He also works as a part-time night security guard. We met on 10/29/08 when I stopped to enjoy the scenic view, and then ended up purchasing a couple of George's creations. His mother was also selling some of her art there.
