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.

I have recently been really inspired by a couple of fellow JPG-ers -- firstly, by Marco Martinez's story http://jpgmag.com/stories/12369 about the Polaroid camera he's giving away. I began going through the thousands of wonderful Polaroid shots here to choose my favourite as requested, in the hopes of getting the Polaroid shipped to me. I remembered having one as a kid and being completely fascinated by this pre-cursor to the instant age. Wouldn't it be fun to try that again, I thought. The more images I looked at, the more I wanted one. I realized that some of my work was taken with that kind of result in my mind. I can't quite get it right with post-processing.
Then I came across Tremaine Sterling's story http://jpgmag.com/stories/12592/ about the Poladroid program. That looks cool, I thought -- think I'll give it a try. Well that took up a few hours of my life and
I LOVE IT!
But I still want the Polaroid..........
hang on Mario, I think I'm about halfway through all the images and I'll have a favourite soon!
