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).

I've had an ongoing HW assignment for my Senior Project class. Every week, I have to make a self portrait.
Since there are so many students in the class, I didn't get to show my work for five weeks. When I finally presented the five pieces I had done this past Wednesday, I was told that, while my pieces were aesthetically pleasing, they were "too vague" and "too artistic". The teacher told me, as he had told others, that I just needed to take a straight photo of myself, without all the art.
I got so frustrated that they didn't get what I was trying to say. Did they even try to interpret them, or did they just open their mouths without even thinking first?
Whatever the reason, I got so upset I broke down and started crying in class, and had to step outside for some fresh air. Thankfully, two good friends of mine came to comfort me, and a few other people were worried as well.
After that, I decided that if they wanted a photo, they were going to get a photo... in spades.
This is my life. This is the past three years, the best moments I've spent with him, and what I will always remember more than anything.
They wanted raw? This is it. If they don't like it, oh fucking well.
