Dia de los Muertos
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).

A mother explains the various elements that make up an ofrenda in the zocalo of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico during the celebration of Dia de los Muertos. During the Day of the Dead, families make alters dedicated to departed relatives, which include favorite foods, beverages and memorabilia to be enjoyed by the deceased as they return to the physical world on November 1 and 2. Alters for departed loved ones are constructed in public plazas, cemeteries and in homes to provide a place for the spirit of the dead to return and commune with the living.
