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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

In the weeks leading up to the mission this Soldier was about to head out on, military police in the 34th Military Police Company of the 34th Infantry Division were hit with improvised explosive devices (IED) almost every day. This Soldier took a moment to pray for his and his Soldiers' safety. I remember when I took this; it gave me chills just seeing him there and knowing what he was praying for and why. Soldiers pray before missions, but I rarely see Soldiers pray openly like this. It was definitely an inspiring moment, and you should be proud to hear that all Soldiers made it home that night safely.
