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).

Our cousine Maria is holding the photo of one of our grandfathers.
A story behind this picture.
In twenties he refused to be a scribe in the village "Soviet", because it meant he will help to send villagers to the Siberia. He couldn’t protest openly, so he took an axe and cut his thumb. When the war started he didn’t want to fight for Stalin and shoot himself in his leg. It was discovered and he was executed as a deserter.
In the same time my agnate grandfather was displaced to Siberia, my grandmother and her 5 children were expelled from their home and escaped from the village to save their lives.
Two years ago we vent for the first time to my late father’s village Lysohirka and discovered some of these stories.
